12 Rajya Sabha MPs have been suspended for the entire session

Share with Your Friends

This decision has been taken after the presentation of a resolution by the government under Rule 256 on the procedure and conduct of business of the Rajya Sabha. This rule provides for the suspension of a member from the Parliament.

  • This rule has been used 13 times in the past to suspend 26 members (some several times) since 1962.
  • According to Rule 256, the Chairman may, if he considers necessary, suspend a member who disregards the authority of the Chairman or who repeatedly and knowingly abuses the rules of the Rajya Sabha by obstructing the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha.
  • The member so nominated may be suspended for a period not exceeding the remainder of the session.
  • The Rajya Sabha may, at any time when a motion is made, pass a resolution abolishing such suspension.
  • In addition, the Prime Minister had called for ‘quality debate’ in Parliament to improve the standards of parliamentary scrutiny.

Key issues highlighted include:

  • Short duration of parliamentary session has become a trend.
  • Inadequate scrutiny of laws by the legislature (the government passed 15 bills in 10 minutes in the last session).
