INDIA.Delhi. Eight Member of Parliament (MPs) were suspended from the Rajya Sabha on Sunday. The main reason behind suspension was the chaos created by the MPs during the passing of controversial farm bills on Sunday. However, the MPs refused to leave the session. The suspended members included Derek O’Brien belonging to Trinamool Congress and Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Sanjay Singh among others.

The members were suspended over a display of unruly behaviour with the Chair. The opposition leaders said during the session that the members should have been given a chance to explain. But, the Rajya Sabha said that the decision was based on a government motion.
