Rajya Sabha: Congress refuses to join Rajya Sabha panel to probe violence in House

New Delhi: The Congress party on Thursday formally refused to be part of an inquiry panel that the Chairman of Rajya Sabha N Venkaiah Naidu proposed to set up to probe the violent incidents that took place in the Upper House on the last working day of the abruptly concluded monsoon session of Parliament in August.  It is learnt that many other like-minded opposition parties, including DMK, RJD, TMC, Shiv Sena and Left Parties, also are thinking of refusing to be part of the proposed committee.

According to the details derived from the source, the  Opposition Leader Mallikarjun Kharge in a letter to Rajya Sabha chairperson M Venkaiah Naidu, said, "Constituting an inquiry committee on the incidents of August 11, 2021, seems to be designed to intimidate MPs into silence. It will not only suppress the voices of the people's representatives but will deliberately brush aside all those that are uncomfortable to the government." He added, "I am, therefore, unequivocally against constituting the enquiry committee and the question of a party proposing the name of a member from a party for nomination to this committee does not arise."

The government side had formally registered complaints with the office of the chairman and named some Opposition MPs in this regard.
