The proceedings of Rajya Sabha have started. On the incident of the past day, the Chairman of Rajya Sabha said that it was the worst day for Rajya Sabha. Some MPs threw the paper, broke mike and Rule book was also thrown. I am deeply saddened by this incident. The Deputy Chairman was threatened. Offensive comment was made on them.
The MPs of the opposition parties who created an uproar have been suspended. 8 MPs have been suspended for the remaining session. The MPs to be suspended are Derek O'Brien, Sanjay Singh, Ripun Bora, Nazir Hussain, KK Ragesh, A Karim, Rajeev Satav, Dola Sen.
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said on yesterday's incident that whatever happened in the Rajya Sabha was sad, shameful and unfortunate. Two bills related to agriculture were being discussed in the Rajya Sabha, what happened in the Rajya Sabha at that time was tragic, it was unfortunate as well and beyond that I would like to say that it was highly embarrassing.
