India - Parliament: Suspension of MPs won't be revoked, says Venkaiah Naidu
Leaders of the Opposition have been calling for the suspension to be lifted. On Monday, 12 Rajya Sabha MPs were barred for the rest of the Winter Session for alleged 'unruly' behavior during the previous Parliament session. Here are more details on this.
Context Why does this story matter?
The suspended MPs would not be able to attend the remainder of the ongoing session which will conclude on December 23. However, the suspension is controversial as Opposition alleges members cannot be suspended for actions during a previous session. Rule 256, under which the MPs were suspended, says members can be suspended 'for a period not exceeding the remainder of the session.'
Details Naidu said MPs expressed 'no remorse'
