NEW DELHI: The Privileges Committee of Lok Sabha on Wednesday revoked the suspension of Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury from the lower house.
Earlier this month, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury was suspended from Parliament for his “misconduct” during the debate on the no-confidence motion.
Parliamentary affairs minister had sought an apology from the Congress leader for his remarks against PM Modi during this speech. However, Chowdhury didn’t tender an apology after which the minister moved the resolution, which was passed with a voice vote.
“The Committee has adopted a resolution to revoke the suspension of Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury from the Lok Sabha. The resolution will be sent to the Speaker as soon as possible,” a committee member said.
Chowdhury was named by Speaker Om Birla for “unruly conduct” on August 11, the last day of the monsoon session and was suspended from the membership of Lok Sabha pending a report from the Privileges Committee.
Congress leaders had called the action against its floor leader ‘unbelievable and ‘undemocratic’.
