PM meets top ministers to discuss Parliament strategy

Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with cabinet members on Tuesday to discuss the government’s strategy in parliament, amid a stalemate with the opposition over the suspension of four Lok Sabha MPs for the full monsoon session for “violations”.

Those attending the meeting included Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, Parliamentary Minister Pralhad Joshi, Information and Broadcasting Minister Anurag Singh Thakur and Justice Minister Kiren Rijiju.

Four congressmen in particular were suspended for Monday’s entire monsoon session for misbehavior.

Manikam Tagore, Ramya Haridas, Jotimani and T.N. Prathapan was suspended for the entire monsoon session, which ended August 12, for holding placards in the hall during their protest. Om Birla’s spokesman had warned them beforehand.

On Monday, when the House of Representatives convened at 14:00 after the inauguration ceremony of President Draupadi Murmu, members of the opposition began chanting slogans about rising prices and increasing taxes. Some of them were seen holding placards and banners as they rushed towards the well house.
