The second week of the Monsoon session began with the opposition still chanting slogans against the government regarding the lynching issues.

Proceedings in both the houses began at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan informed the Lok Sabha about the loss of lives in floods and bus accident in Rajasthan. The House mourned the deaths. Following this, the question hour began in the Lok Sabha.

During the question hour, in spite of the speaker requesting to continue with the question hour, few opposition MPs sought a debate on the agrarian crisis. Congres’s legislative party leader Mallikarjuna Kharge demanded a discussion on mob lynching. The party also moved an adjournment motion for the same but was denied. He questioned why his adjournment motion was rejected and added that in spite of PM Narendra Modi assuring thrice that cow vigilantes will be reined in, why there is no progress yet?

Regarding the demand of discussion over the lynching issue, Mahajan asked Kharge to tender a notice for a discussion on gau rakshaks and lynching. She said that the opposition will be allowed to speak regarding the issue after the question hour and Union Minister Ananth Kumar requests Congress MPs to end sloganeering. However, opposition leaders continued to say slogans against the government and said they were not allowed to speak in the house, few MPs also tore papers and threw towards the Well of the House.

Responding to this behavior of the MPs, The Speaker adjourned the house till 2 and also suspended 6 Congress MPs for their misconduct in the house for 5 consecutive days. Gaurav Gogoi, Sushmita Dev, Ranjeet Ranjan, Adhir Choudhary, K Suresh and M K Raghavan are the MPs to be suspended.
