·3 min read

Six TMC MPs - Dola Sen, Nadimul Haque, Arpita Ghosh, Mausam Noor, Shanta Chhetri and Abir Ranjan Biswas - were suspended from the Rajya Sabha for the day for holding placards and "disorderly behaviour".

Several Opposition parties plan to corner the government over the issues of Pegasus reports, farm laws, and inflation amid days of logjam in both the Houses of Parliament, which have mostly seen suspensions without much business being conducted in the Monsoon Session.
