Parliament Monsoon Session Opposition raises issues of mob lynchings NEET

It came after the suspension of six Congress Parliamentarians for throwing pieces of paper and disrupting the proceedings during zero hour on Monday.

The Congress Party said that Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan should have given the six party MPs a chance to explain their stand before she suspended them.

The leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge said that such an incident never took place under former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar, who never lost her cool amid usual turbulence which the lower house faces often.

Deaths caused by AIDS have fallen from 1.9 million in 2005 to 1 million in 2016. The United States alone is known to have 1.2 million people infected with HIV.

The Lower House witnessed noisy scenes as members of the Congress and some other Opposition parties were in the Well raising slogans against the government and protesting lynching incidents in the name of cow protection nearly since the House assembled in the morning. But Ms Mahajan said the Congress MPs had launched protests despite her agreeing to an opposition request for a discussion on alleged atrocities against Dalits and minorities. The Oppositions act of pointing out the mistakes committed by the government is part of the democratic tradition of the country. Apart from lashing out at the remarks made against party leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, Congress members in the House raised a number of issues, from seeking revocation of the suspension order against six of their colleagues to demanding a discussion on "lynching over cow vigilantism". "Hon Speaker should reconsider", he tweeted.
