#BJPKilledDemocracy: Congress Against Suspension of 25 MPs by Lok Sabha Speaker
The Congress party is furious over Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspending its 25 MPs for 5 consecutive sittings. Congress President Sonia Gandhi, vice president Rahul Gandhi, former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other part leaders conducted a dharna ruining the session after suspension of the 25 MPs. RJD and Samajwadi Party also stood in support of Congress party. As Sonia Gandhi spoke at the dharna, “It is government’s duty to run the Parliament. Suspension of our MPs is anti-democratic. Democracy is being murdered,” she said. BJP is trying to cut down the voice of opposition, said Sonia. Congress leaders strictly demanded resignation from Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj facing allegations on assisting Lalit Modi and Vyapam Scam, Rajasthan CM Vasundhara Raje and Madhya Pradesh CM Sivaraj Singh Chauhan. They held placards in hands. Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan suspended 25 of the MPs of Congress party for 5 consecutive sessions for obstructing the house holding placards and shouting slogans.
