Who Are 78 MPs Suspended Today? Here's The Complete List

This takes the total number of MPs suspended in this session to 47

New Delhi:

At least 78 Opposition MPs have been suspended from both houses of parliament after they staged a protest inside the chamber, demanding a statement by Union Home Minister Amit Shah on the massive breach in Parliament security last week.

Hours after 33 members were suspended from Lok Sabha for “misconduct” for the remainder of winter session, 45 members from opposition, including Congress’ Jairam Ramesh, Randeep Surjewala and KC Venugopal, were suspended from the Rajya Sabha for the remaining period of the session which concludes on December 22.

While 34 members were suspended for the remaining part of the session, the “misconduct” of 11 others was also referred to the Privileges Committee, which has been asked to give its report in three months. They have been suspended until the report is submitted by the panel.

News agency ANI has shared the complete list of the names of suspended MPs. 

Speaking to the media, Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, who is among those suspended, said the government was behaving in a dictatorial manner and treating Parliament as BJP headquarters.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said in post on ‘X’ earlier in the day that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah had spoken on the issue outside the Parliament when the winter session is underway.

“The Prime Minister speaks to a leading newspaper on the very serious December 13th security breach in the Lok Sabha. The Home Minister speaks to a TV channel on the security breach. Parliament is in session. INDIA parties are demanding a statement from the Home Minister in both Houses on the shocking incidents. It is a simple, straightforward and legitimate demand. But Home Minister refuses to make a statement which is his duty and responsibility. This is why Parliament is getting adjourned repeatedly,” Jairam Ramesh said.

Fourteen MPs had been suspended last week, also for demanding a statement on the security breach. So, this takes the total number of MPs suspended in this session to 92.
