Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Monday decided not to attend the Lok Sabha from tomorrow to protest the suspension of 25 Lok Sabha MPs, TMC parliamentary party leader Sudip Bandyopadhyay said.
"For the greater interest of Parliamentary democracy, we are opposed to suspension of 25 Lok Sabha MPs. We are not attending Lok Sabha from tomorrow," Bandyopadhyay said in a statement.
Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan today suspended 25 Congress members for five days for "persistently, wilfully obstructing" the House".
The Speaker 'named' (identifying for action) the 25 Congress members who were carrying placards and shouting slogans in the Well while pressing for resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje over Lalit Modi row.
