Agartala, December 22: In a historic turn of events, a total of 146 Members of Parliament (MPs) have been expelled from the entire session for raising their voices against the government. This incident marks a stain on the fabric of Indian democracy. The decision was announced during a massive assembly, and it comes as a response to the ongoing protests by opposition parties.
Jitendra Choudhury, the State Secretary and MLA of the CPIM on Friday expressed concern over the expulsion, stating that it poses a threat to the parliamentary system, with the potential to destabilize the democratic structure of India. He claimed that the Sansad Bhavan, constructed at a cost of Rs 20,000 crore, witnessed a terrorist attack by extremists after 22 years on the same day. He further emphasized that this incident highlights a significant lapse in parliamentary security.
Choudhury also alleged the use of black money in some states by the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). However, he pointed out that over the past decade, the country has witnessed an increase in unemployment, rising inflation, and a higher rate of farmer suicides.
Moreover, Choudhury revealed that 28 political parties across the country are forming a united resistance movement. Four parties from the Communist Party of India (Marxist) and five leftist parties, including the Communist Party of India (CPI) and the All India Forward Bloc, have organized a joint protest and rally in Agartala. The political landscape seems to be intensifying with these collective efforts against the current government’s policies.
