Several Opposition MPs including Shashi Tharoor, Farooq Abdullah have been suspended from Lok Sabha for the rest of Winter Session for displaying placards and raising slogans, demanding a reply from the home minister over the December 13 Parliament security breach matter. In a major security breach on the anniversary of the 2001 Parliament terror attack last Wednesday, two men — Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan D — jumped into the Lok Sabha chamber from the public gallery during Zero Hour, released coloured smoke and shouted slogans, before being overpowered by the MPs. Two others, including a woman, were detained outside the Parliament complex for staging a protest.

On Monday, Lok Sabha suspended 33 opposition members, including the leader of the Congress Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, DMK’s T R Baalu and Sougata Ray of the Trinamool Congress, from the House for displaying placards and raising slogans over the Parliament security breach issue.
