In Tripura assembly Congress-CPI(M) protests against Rahul’s disqualification

The opposition CPI(M) and the Congress party MLAs on Monday showed protest in the second day of the assembly session against the disqualification of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi from Lok Sabha following his conviction by a court in a defamation case.

The opposition MLAs displayed placards to voice their protest over the action against the former congress president. The opposition legislators, however, did not disrupt the proceedings of the House.

The Tripura Pradesh Congress president Birjit Sinha said that to protect democracy and protest against injustice, the party is continuing protest inside and outside the Assembly.

He said, “Rahul Gandhi’s voice was suppressed by the BJP government and he was not allowed to speak in the Lok Sabha before being disqualified. The people of this country would not accept the murder of democracy in India.”

The defamation case was against him over his ‘Modi surname’ remark in 2019 in Karnataka.

Meanwhile, the ruling BJP MLA Ratan Lal Nath took a dig on the CPI(M) party in the Assembly on Monday, and asked the party to be “nationalist” first and “Khargevaadi communist party” later.

Nath also took a jibe at the CPI(M) MLA Jitendra Choudhury in the assembly on Monday and said that despite being a tribal leader, he had to contest from non ST-reserved seat in the recently held assembly election, because the communist has gradually lost their tribal support base.
