Parliament’s Winter Session 2021 Live: Democracy is killed; Do not be allowed to raise questions, says Rahul Gandhi


Parliament’s Winter Session 2021 Live Updates: Opposition MPs led a protest march from the Gandhi statue to Vijay Chowk demanding that the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha members be lifted. Congressman Rahul Gandhi, who joined the protesting members, said: “This (suspension of 12 MPs) is a symbol of the crushing of the voice of the people of India. Their votes have been crushed. They have done nothing wrong.”

Gandhi said they must not raise issues of national importance. “Bill after bill is passed in the Folketing in noise. That is not the way to lead parliament. PM does not come to the House. We must not raise issues of national importance. That is the unfortunate killing of democracy,” he said.

Rajya Sabha was postponed until 6 p.m. Persistent MPs continued to raise slogans such as “We want justice”, even as House Speaker M Venkaiah Naidu told members that the suspension of MPs will be withdrawn if they express regret over their actions.

Opposition parties decided after a meeting today that their members in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha would march from the Gandhi statue to Vijay Chowk in support of the 12 suspended Rajya Sabha MPs.
