NPCC protests against suspension of 146 INDIA MPs

Nagaland News

DIMAPUR, DECEMBER 22: In response to the nationwide protest call by the AICC, the Nagaland Pradesh Congress Committee (NPCC) staged a protest rally against the suspension of 146 INDIA MPs at Congress Bhavan Kohima today.
These MPs, belonging to both the Houses of Parliament, were suspended because they demanded an address by the Union Home Minister over the issue of security breach brought about by the entry of two intruders into the Lok Sabha, whose entry incidentally was facilitated by a BJP MP, a press release issued by the NPCC stated.
The NPCC said such blatant abuse of power by the Government of the day at the Centre is unprecedented in the modern history of Parliamentary democracy in India and the rest of the world and cannot be condemned enough.
“Needless to say, the actual reason for which the Modi Government resorted to these mass suspensions was to ensure the passage of consequential bills without any meaningful parliamentary discussions and debates”, the NPCC claimed.
The NPCC further stated, “The bills so passed under these subversive environment include the three draconian Criminal Justice Bills, which envisions to arm the state with overarching draconian powers to impede on the rights of its citizens, the equally draconian and sinister Postal and Telecoms Bills, which is basically an open license to the Gvernment to snoop and pry on any and every individual in complete contravention of universally accepted personal privacy rights, and last but not the least – The Chief
Election Commissioner Appointment Bill, under which the Chief Justice of India has been dropped from the selection panel entrusted with the appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner and Election commissioners, sounding the death knell of the already heavily assaulted integrity and independence of the apex electoral institution of the country.”
Stating that the Congress refuses to cower down to the bullying tactics of the BJP, it said it would continue to condemn and oppose their agenda to destroy the democratic principles upon which the founding fathers built the Nation.
