Opposition leaders stage a protest in Rajya Sabha during the Winter Session of Parliament in New Delhi on Nov 29.

Highlights

  • 12 Rajya Sabha opposition MPs have been suspended from Winter Session
  • Naidu said that suspension will remain as the MPs "haven't expressed remorse"
  • Opposition leaders stage walkout after Chairman rejects request for revocation of suspension of MPs

Proceedings of the Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day on Tuesday as the opposition parties had staged a walkout in the morning and the government wanted a discussion on the Dam Safety Bill, 2019. The opposition had staged the walkout to protest the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha members on Monday. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi urged Deputy Chairman Harivansh, who was in the Chair to discuss the Bill on Wednesday as the government wants the opposition parties to participate in it. "As far as I know, they (opposition parties) have walked out for the day... if they are coming tomorrow we can take up this bill tomorrow. We want to run the House with opposition and (through) discussion. Our party is the most democratic. Our leader is also very democratic," he said. Since The Dam Safety Bill, 2019, was the only legislative business in the afternoon, the deputy chairman adjourned the House for the day.
