Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Ripun Bora was among the eight MPS who were suspended from Rajya Sabha on Monday for unruly behaviour on Sunday.

Apart from Bora, the other MPs include Derek O Brien, Sanjay Singh, Raju Satav, KK Ragesh, Dola Sen, Syed Nazir Hussain and Elamaran Karim.

Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu, while condemning the MPs misbehaviour with Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh on Sunday, said that it was a bad day for the Upper House of the Parliament.

“It was a bad day for Rajya Sabha yesterday when some members came to the well of the House,” Naidu said.

“Deputy Chairman was physically threatened,” Naidu added.

“He was obstructed from doing his duty. This is unfortunate & condemnable. I suggest to MPs, please do some introspection,” Naidu further said.

BJP Rajya Sabha MPs on Monday filed a complaint against opposition members who created ruckus in the Rajya House on Sunday during the discussion over farm bills.
