Parliament Winter Session 2023: Prior to adjourning for the day, the Lok Sabha adopted a resolution to suspend nine additional MPs for the remaining duration of the ongoing Winter Session. With Derek O’Brien's suspension from the Rajya Sabha taken into account, a total of 14 MPs have been suspended from both Houses during the Winter Session thus far. Following the suspension of O’Brien, the Rajya Sabha passed a motion to refer his case to the Committee of Privileges for his alleged misconduct amid the uproar.

On the 11th day of the Winter Session, Opposition leaders voiced their concerns over the significant security breach that occurred on Wednesday, where two individuals with smoke canisters entered the Lok Sabha. Opposition leaders were seen chanting slogans such as 'PM sadan me aao, Amit Shah sharam karo' (PM come to the house, Amit Shah, have some shame) in both Houses.

    Parliament Session 2023 LIVE: Smriti Irani opposes paid period leaves, stating 'menstruation isn't a handicap'

    Union Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani has expressed her opposition to the concept of paid period leaves for women employees. Responding to MP Manoj Kumar Jha's inquiry in the Rajya Sabha about government measures to ensure employers grant paid menstrual leaves to women, Irani asserted that menstruation is a natural aspect of a woman's life and not a handicap.

    Speaking on the matter, Irani stated, "As a menstruating woman, I can say menstruation and our menstrual cycle is not a handicap; it's a natural part of a woman's life journey. Given that women today are opting for more and more economic opportunities, we should not propose issues where women are, in some way, denied an equal opportunity just because somebody who does not menstruate has a viewpoint on menstruation."
