On Thursday, December 14, as many as 15 Opposition MPs were suspended from the remaining period of the winter session of the Parliament, for disrupting house proceedings. This move comes after high-voltage drama in both houses of the Parliament, just a day after the attack on the Parliament on Wednesday, when two intruders entered the Lok Sabha and threw smoke canisters in the house, while two other demonstrators raised slogans with smoke canisters outside the Lok Sabha.

Before their suspension, the MPs moved into the well of the house, and raising slogans, demanded a statement from HM Amit Shah and PM Narendra Modi over the security breach that took place a day before. Then, Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Pralhad Joshi, moved two resolutions on separate occasions for the suspension of the MPs.

The first adjournment took place during the question hour, where the house was adjourned till 2 PM amidst Opposition uproar.

Taking to X, Congress Rajya Sabha MP, KC Venugopal, said, ‘A horrible, undemocratic move to suspend opposition MPs for demanding an answer from the government on the shocking security breach in Parliament yesterday. On the one hand, five MPs are suspended for demanding accountability, while on the other, there is no action against the BJP MP who facilitated the entry of the miscreants. This is a murder of democracy. The BJP government has reduced Parliament to a rubber stamp. Not even the pretence of a democratic process is left.’
