Congress Leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury Suspended From Lok Sabha – N.F Times

New Delhi: Congress leader in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, was suspended from the house today for allegedly attacking the Prime Minister and disrupting the House proceedings.

This was a first time the leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha has got a suspension order. The matter will be referred to a Privileges Committee.

His suspension was in response to a resolution moved by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Pralhad Joshi, which was accepted in Parliament on Thursday. He will remain suspended until the Privileges Committee submits its report on the matter.

In his resolution, Pralhad Joshi accused Chowdhury of constantly causing disruptions and even demeaning the country and its image during the Parliamentary proceedings.

“It has become habitual. Despite getting repeated warnings, he hasn’t improved himself. He always makes baseless charges in his debates. He demeans the country and its image, and never apologises,” Joshi said.
