Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla Disassociates MP Suspensions from Parliament Security Breach

X: @the_news_21

In response to the recent security breach in Parliament and subsequent speculation, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla issued a letter to all Members of Parliament, unequivocally stating that there is no correlation between the suspension of 13 MPs and the breach that occurred on December 13.

The breach, wherein two individuals jumped into the Lok Sabha from the visitors’ gallery and discharged smoke cannisters, caused widespread panic and occurred on the 22nd anniversary of the 2001 Parliament attacks.

Speaker Birla emphasized in his statement that any connection drawn between the suspension of MPs and the security breach is unwarranted and erroneous. He clarified that the decision to suspend members from the service of the House is independent of the incident on December 13.

“It is indeed unfortunate that some Members and political parties are linking the decision of the House to suspend some members from the service of the House to the incident which occurred on December 13, 2023,” mentioned the Speaker, stressing the lack of association between the two events.

Furthermore, Birla underlined that the primary intent behind the suspension of Members is to uphold the sanctity of the House, maintaining the integrity and decorum essential to parliamentary proceedings.

The Speaker’s statement seeks to dispel any misconceptions or misinterpretations linking the disciplinary action taken against the MPs to the security breach, underscoring the distinct nature of these decisions in preserving the Parliament’s functioning and dignity.
