Rajya Sabha ruckus was an exhibition of Urban Naxalism values: Giriraj Singh

BJP MP Giriraj Singh called Rajya Sabha ruckus, an exhibition of Urban Naxalism values. Singh said, "I believe that it was not just an incident that happened in Rajya Sabha. The attack on the Deputy Speaker was an attack on the constitutional values of this country. This was an exhibition of Urban Naxalism values. Naxals also, say that they want to build up a just society but by killing people, damaging property and so on. The opposition should not play the role of "Dhritarashtra" here. The people of India will not tolerate this."

Most shameful day in the history of Parliament: RS Prasad on ruckus in Rajya Sabha

In a media brief on Sep 21, Union Law and Justice Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad spoke on Rajya Sabha ruckus. Ravi Shankar Prasad said, "Today's conduct of the suspended members of not refusing the House (Rajya Sabha) in spite of a declaration of suspension by the Chairperson is illegal and further aggravates their conduct as far as violating norms of the House is concerned." He further said, "Yesterday was the most shameful day in the history of Parliament. There is enough visual evidence available that if the Marshals would have not protected the Deputy Chairperson of (Rajya Sabha) Harivansh Ji, he would have been nearly physically assaulted." He further said, "The country, as well as Bihar, is pained by the treatment meted out to Harivansh ji in Rajya Sabha. The way Congress and RJD not only remained silent while he was insulted but also provoked it, will be told to Bihar. Congress and RJD will have to answer." On Akali Dal leader Harsimrat Kaur Badal, Prasad said, "She has been a distinguished member of our Cabinet and the issue was discussed. She raised a point if it was legally possible. I clarified Centre has power under provisions of the Constitution."
