In a show of displeasure at the three-day disruption of the House’s business, opposition MPs from the recently formed INDIA (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance) sat in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue throughout the night.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been pressed by the opposition to address the violence in Manipur in the House. A number of opposition party leaders have issued adjournment notices calling for a thorough debate on the issue.
Leaders from opposition parties, including those from the Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and Trinamool Congress (TMC), staged protests throughout the night while holding signs that said India for Manipur.
AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh was suspended for the remainder of the Monsoon session for merely asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address the Manipur violence issue in Parliament on Monday, according to TMC spokesperson Saket Gokhale. The opposition MPs also staged a sit-in protest in solidarity with Singh.
Saket Gokhale posted the following on X, formerly known as Twitter, MPs from across parties of Team INDIA took turns to sit together in solidarity with AAP MP Sanjay Singh through the entire night after he was shockingly and unfairly suspended simply for asking PM Modi to discuss Manipur in Parliament.
Sanjay Singh tweeted a photo of himself this morning seated in front of Mahatma Gandhi’s statue in front of Parliament.
On July 20, the Opposition demanded that Prime Minister Modi address the Manipur problem in the House, setting off the turbulent start to the Monsoon Session. This occurred after a shocking video of two women being paraded in the Kangpokpi region of Manipur went viral and caused uproar across the country.
The Opposition caused a commotion over the issue, repeatedly interrupting the proceedings in both the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha. The administration has stated that it is prepared for a discussion and insisted that Union Home Minister Amit Shah speak on the subject. However, the opposition has urged that PM Modi issue a statement.
