TMC’s Derek O’Brien Suspended from Rajya Sabha for Rest of Monsoon Session

New Delhi: TMC’s Derek O’Brien was suspended from the Rajya Sabha for the rest of the Monsoon Session for his “unruly behaviour and disregarding the directions of the Chair”. Chairman of the House and Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar announced it on Tuesday.

On Monday, Dhankhar accused Derek O’Brien of doing “theatrics” in the House to gain publicity during a heated debate on the Delhi services bill.

The Leader of the House and Union Minister Piyush Goyal thereafter moved a motion for suspending the Trinamool leader for the rest of the Monsoon session.

No sooner had Goyal got up than Trinamool MPs rushed to the well, shouting slogans.

Dhankhar said Derek O’Brien has been suspended for the remainder of the Monsoon session, which ends on August 11.
