In a tumultuous session today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi faced vociferous protests from opposition MPs during his address in the Rajya Sabha on the Motion of Thanks to the President’s Address. The uproar centered around allegations that the Leader of Opposition (LoP) was unjustly barred from speaking.

As PM Modi began his speech, opposition members, prominently from the Congress and other parties, raised slogans demanding, ‘LoP ko bolne do’ (Let the LoP speak). They accused the government of silencing dissent and undermining parliamentary norms by denying the LoP an opportunity to address the House on such a crucial occasion.

The disruption escalated as MPs from the opposition benches gathered at the well of the House, shouting slogans and waving placards. The Speaker’s attempts to restore order were met with continued uproar, highlighting the deepening rift and polarization within the parliamentary landscape.

The incident underscores growing tensions between the ruling party and the opposition, with parliamentary decorum often being a casualty amidst intense political maneuvering. The developments are likely to fuel further debate on the functioning of democratic institutions and the space for dissent within India’s legislative framework.
