Four Congress MPs including Manickam Tagore, Ramya Haridas, Jothimani and TN Prathapan have been suspended from the Lok Sabha proceedings for the entire Monsoon session . The reason cited for the action against the PMs is the ‘unruly behaviour and disrupting proceedings’,.

As the proceedings began in the Lok Sabha at 2 p.m. after the swearing in ceremony of President Droupadi Murmu, the opposition members started sloganeering on the issue of price rise and hiked GST rates.
The Speaker said the government was ready to discuss and asked the members not to wave placards. The opposition members, however continued to stage a protest against inflation and the hike in the GST rates after which the house got adjourned.
Later the Speaker warned them and asked not to violate the rules of the House.
