New Delhi [India], Mar 5 (ANI): Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi, who was among the seven MPs suspended on Thursday from Lok Sabha for the remaining part of the Budget session for "gross misconduct," said the government should discuss Delhi riots on Friday and show accountability towards the people who elected it.
In a tweet, Gogoi also said that Congress derives its strength from its commitment towards Mother India and will continue to seek justice from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"Suspend me, but please discuss the Delhi riots tomorrow. Show your accountability towards the very people who voted for you. No matter the number, my party derives its strength from our commitment towards Bharat Mata and we will continue to seek justice from PM Modi," he said in a tweet.
Congress has been pressing for immediate discussion on last week's Delhi violence but the government has said it will hold the discussion after Holi.
Congress members have been going to the well of the House over their demand since Monday when the House met after recess for the second half of the budget session. They have been raising slogans against the governments and also carrying placards. The party has sought the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi has said that the government will seek further action including termination of membership of Congress member who snatched papers from the Speaker's table on Thursday. (ANI)
