‘Muting of democratic India continues’: Rahul Gandhi over suspension of Rajya Sabha MPs

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday attacked the Narendra Modi government over suspension of eight Rajya Sabha MPs, saying ‘muting of democratic India’ continues by initially silencing and later suspending the parliamentarians.

“Muting Of Democratic India’ continues: by initially silencing and later, suspending MPs in the Parliament & turning a blind eye to farmers’ concerns on the black agriculture laws,” Rahul tweeted.

“This ‘omniscient’ Govt’s endless arrogance has brought economic disaster for the entire country,” he added.

His comments came after eight Opposition MPs were suspended for creating ruckus in the House on Sunday. 

Trinamool Congress’ Derek O’Brien, TMC’s Dola Sen, Sanjay Singh of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Congress leaders Rajeev Satav, Ripun Bora and Syed Nasir Hussain and KK Ragesh and Elamaram Kareem of the CPI(M) were among those who were suspended from the house.
