Who said what on the suspension of two-thirds of the MPs…
Mallikarjun Kharge (Congress President)- PM Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are touring across the country, but are not coming to the House. This is an insult to the dignity of the House. Many MPs have been suspended by the Speaker of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, for the first time in the history of the country so many MPs have been suspended. They want to end democracy by scaring people.
Akhilesh Yadav (SP President)-People want to know that when MPs had to be suspended then what was the need for a new Parliament building? It would have been better if BJP had built a new room for two-three people in the old Parliament itself.
Supriya Sule (NCP MP)- Whatever is happening in the country is very wrong. We just want to discuss the security lapse. Not just for our MPs, but for BJP MPs, media, everyone. But the government is running away from discussion.
Raghav Chadha (AAP MP)- The most shocking and unfortunate thing is that the BJP MP who helped two people to infiltrate the House, who violated the security of the Lok Sabha, has not been suspended or called for investigation. The members who are demanding a response from the government on the security lapse and the role of the BJP MP are being suspended.
