Opposition MPs to carry out sit-in protest at Parliament over suspension of 12 MPs

Uproar over the suspension of 12 MPs from Rajya Sabha for ‘unruly conduct’ on the last day of the monsoon session of parliament continues as Opposition MPs gear up for a sit-in protest in front of the Gandhi statue in Parliament premises today.

Apart from this, Congress president Sonia Gandhi will address a meeting of Congress parliamentary party in the Central Hall of the Parliament today.

The MPs were suspended last week. Holding the government responsible for the deadlock in Rajya Sabha, opposition members on Tuesday said they will continue their joint protest against the suspension of 12 MPs till the time it is revoked.

The Upper House did not transact any significant business for the second consecutive day as opposition parties kept up their protest, demanding the revocation of the action against the MPs.
