APCC hails Congress MPs' role in Lok Sabha

The Speaker announced the suspension soon after the Lok Sabha reconvened at 2 pm, which prompted the Opposition to launch another protest and force the House to be adjourned, first till 2.30 and then for the day.

Leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, Kharge claimed that such an incident never took place under former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, who, he said, never lost her cool amid the "usual" turbulence which the Lower House often faced.

The Speaker said the members picked up official papers from the Lok Sabha secretariat staffers' table, tore them up and threw them towards the Chair, which prompted members of the treasury benches to shout "shame, shame". Kharge and Trinamool Congress MP Saugata Roy appealed to the Speaker to show generosity and revoke the suspension to get the House to resume work.

Mahajan's comments came shortly after she suspended six Congress MPs from the House for five days for their "highly unbecoming" conduct during protests over the lynching issue that "undermined the Chair's dignity".

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan urged the House to calmly cooperate and not create havoc.
