GUWAHATI, July 25: APCC general secretary and senior spokesperson Apurba Kumar Bhattacharjee has said that the suspention of six MPs, including Gaurav Gogoi and Sushmita Deve, from the Lok Sabha for five has set an ominous and wrong precedent for democracy. The development came during the Zero Hour on the House on Monday when the Congress MPs were protesting demanding a discussion on attacks on Dalits, atrocities against women and Muslims by cow vigilantes. The six MPs tore up papers and threw them in the air and towards the Speaker’s podium. “How there be opposition from the ruling party in discussing issues like attacks on Muslims in the me of protecting cow and attacks on Dalits and women in the country?” Bhattacharjee questioned, and added: “If the Opposition parties cannot raise such issues on the floor of the Lok Sabha, where will they? The BJP-led government doesn’t want any discussion on such issues as discussions on them will expose its failure to protect all sections of people in the tion.”
