Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan on Monday suspended Six Congress MPs Gaurav Gogoi, Sushmita Dèv, Ranjeet Ranjan, Adhir Ranjan, K Suresh and K Ragavan for five days for throwing papers in the Lower House of Parliament.
“Sad with what happened. Question Hour should never be disrupted. Had told Kharge Ji, I will allow him to speak after Question Hour,” Sumitra Mahajan said
“Creating ruckus at Well is non-disciplinary in itself but tearing up paper and throwing it on Speaker 4 times was worse,” she added
The members threw pieces of paper and disrupted proceedings during the zero hour. The Speaker suspended them and adjourned the Lok Sabha till 2:30.
In 2015 also, the Lok Sabha speaker had suspended 25 Congress MPs for five days for “persistently, willfully obstructing” the House”.
