Amid opposition chants to sack MoS Ajay Mishra, Lok Sabha gets adjourned
The Lower House (Lok Sabha) was adjourned for the day after opposition parties disrupted the proceedings demanding the removal of MoS for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra whose son Ashish Mishra is the key accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.
The Lok Sabha, today, was adjourned for the day amid a huge uproar by the Opposition parties demanding the Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra to be sacked from his ministerial post. The MoS is the father of Ashish Mishra, who is the key conspirator in the Lakhimpur Kheri Violence. Several opposition parties like Congress, AITC, and DMK disrupted the functioning of the house. Congress MP from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi who had starred questions listed against his name in the question hour, used the opportunity to demand the removal of the Ajay Mishra from MoS saying he is a “criminal.”
Rahul, in the house, also pointed out that the SIT report also proves the involvement of Ajay Mishra’s son running down the SUV over the innocent farmers on October 3. The Opposition MPs amid sloganeering also trooped into the well and waved placards demanding the removal of Mishra. All India Trinamool Congress MPs, who had earlier stayed away from the opposition were also seen in the well raising the slogans.
In the effort to create a stable and peaceful environment in the house, Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla said that the Congress MP should ask the question as the members should see that no wrong practices are set by disturbing the question hour. He further added that Members of Parliament should make proper and effective use of the question hour to raise all their concerns and issues of their respective constituencies rather than disrupting it.
The demand for the removal of Ajay Mishra from his ministerial post has been going for a long time by numerous opposition parties. Yesterday, the demand further intensified after a video of Ajay Mishra hurling abuses at journalists went viral.
