New Delhi: Eight opposition MPs, including Trinamool Congress floor leader Derek O’Brien and AAP’s Sanjay Singh, were suspended from Rajya Sabha for a week on Monday for their unruly behaviour in the Parliament during the passage of the two contentious farm sector Bills.

O’Brien, his AAP counterpart Sanjay Singh, CPI(M) leader Elamaram Kareem, Trinamool’s Dola Sen, CPI(M) ‘s KK Ragesh and Congress’s Rajeev Satav, Ripun Bora and Hussain were the MPs who were suspended.

The government moved a motion for their suspension for “bringing disrepute” to the House. The motion was approved by the House amid protests from Opposition leaders.

However, the no-confidence motion against deputy chairman of Rajya Sabha Harivansh filed by the Opposition was not accepted by the chair.

The suspended MPs initially refused to leave and shouted slogans, prompting Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu to adjourn the House till 10am. When the House resumed, the suspended MPs continued their protests and the House was adjourned for another half an hour.

Naidu condemned the action of these MPs and said that it was bad day for Rajya Sabha. “They abused Deputy Chairperson. Rules book was thrown on Deputy Chaiman, but no MP can obstruct Chairman. You obstructed the House  and tarnished the image of the Parliament. Is it a Parliamentary standard? Please do an Introspection Derek O’Brien, Please go Out,” Naidu said TMC MP O’Brien.

The suspended MPs didn’t leave the House and instead started a new round of protests.
