Lok Sabha to debate mob lynching tomorrow

New Delhi [India]: The Lok Sabha will hold discussion on the situation arising out of atrocities and lynching in mob violence in the country tomorrow.

The opposition and the government were engaged in a fierce battle in the Lok Sabha on Thursday with each side attacking the other.

Accusing the Government of being in deep slumber, the Opposition members demanded the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s presence to discuss the incidents of lynching in the name of cow protection.

“If it could not be taken under Rule 193, it could have been taken under rules 56 and 57 or under an adjournment motion. But the government is sleeping,” Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge told Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to which the BJP benches embroiled in protest.

The Congress leader further added that his party would not raise the issue of the suspension of six of its members if the House took up the lynching issue for discussion.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar sought to make it clear that the government has always been ready for the debate on all issues including the alleged mob-lynching.

On Monday, Congress members tore and flung papers on the Chair and raised slogans during zero hour against the government.

After the Lok Sabha witnessed uproar, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had suspended six Congress MPs for five days citing unruly behavior.

The suspended MPs are Gourav Gogoi, K. Suresh, Adhiranjan Chowdhary, Ranjeet Ranjan, Sushmita Dev and MK Raghwan. (ANI)
