Opposition MPs asked to be suspended: Union minister Pralhad Joshi | India News


NEW DELHI: A day after Parliament’s winter session was adjourned sine die, Union minister Pralhad Joshi launched a scathing attack on opposition leaders over the suspension of MPs from both Houses of Parliament and said they themselves asked to be suspended.
Addressing a press briefing, Joshi said 19 bills, including Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita and Bharatiya Sakshya Adhiniyam were passed by Parliament.

While these bills were passed, 146 MPs were suspended over the ruckus demanding a statement from home minister Amit Shah on the Parliament security breach.

Hitting out at the opposition over the suspension of MPs, Joshi said, “They themselves came and said to suspend them. Congress has such a low-level strategy.”
Union minister Arjun Ram Meghwal, who was also present at the briefing, said the opposition was looking for revenge after the defeat in the assembly elections.

“The Speaker is the custodian of Parliament. The Lok Sabha Speaker is saying repeatedly that he is responsible for security. Why are they not trusting what the speaker is saying? They were deliberately looking for revenge after the defeat in the assembly elections. They had been planning internally and they got the opportunity,” Meghwal said.

Claiming that the Vice President was insulted, he said, “Congress believes that it is their right to govern. They think the Vice President should be one nominated by them. They cannot stand PM Modi, President Droupadi Murmu and Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar. It is their mentality to insult Dalits, farmers and backward classes.”
