Opposition to boycott Rajya Sabha
Earlier today, the leader of opposition in the Upper House Ghulam Nabi Azad said that they (Opposition MPs) will boycott the proceedings of the Upper House for the rest of the session till their three demands are met.
While speaking after the Zero Hour, Azad said the opposition will boycott the proceedings of the Rajya House and put forth three demands, including the revoking the suspension of eight MPs. “We will boycott Parliament session until the government accepts our three demands," the senior Congress leader stated.
The MPs, including TMC leader Derek O'Brien and Sanjay Singh of AAP, were suspended for the remaining part of the current session over their "misbehavior" with the House deputy chairman during the passage of the controversial farm bills on Sunday.
