TMC Members Walk Out Of Rajya Sabha Protesting Inaction Against 33 Congress Members

Published on 3 May, 2016 at 4:28 pm By

Trinamool Congress members walked out of Rajya Sabha on Tuesday as no action was taken against 33 Congress members who were named for gross disorderly conduct.

TMC member Derek O’Brien said rule 255 was invoked by the Chairman Hamid Ansari on May 2 in which its leader Sukhendu Sekhar Roy was asked to withdraw from Rajya Sabha. He complied with the order.

Brien questioned why the Congress members, who entered the ‘Well’ of the House, shouted slogans and obstructed the proceedings of the House, were not punished.

He said, “We want a ruling from the Chair if action against one member and sparing 33 others “violates Article 14 of the Constitution.” Article 14 provides for right to equality before law.

However, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien said the ruling was given by the Chairman and he cannot say anything on it.



“Ruling of Chairman cannot be questioned, ruling of the Chair cannot be discussed,” he said.

 

The Congress members created uproar as they wanted a discussion on alleged pandering of resources by Gujarat government company GSPC on its KG basin gas project.
