The Lok Sabha panel on privileges on Monday submitted a report recommending revocation of the suspension of Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury from the Decrease Home.

The report was adopted by the Privileges Committee of the Lok Sabha on August 30 and Chowdhury’s suspension was revoked by Speaker Om Birla on the identical day.

The Committee, in its report, mentioned Chowdhury’s conduct of ceaselessly interrupting or disturbing the proceedings of the Home in the course of the speech of the prime minister or different ministers was a “clear case of ‘contempt of the House’.”

“Nevertheless, in view of the regrets expressed by Shri Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Member of Parliament, during his evidence before the Committee, the Committee would recommend that no further punitive action is called for in the matter,” mentioned the report, tabled by Committee Chairman Sunil Kumar Singh.

“The Committee, therefore, recommend that the suspension suffered by Shri Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury so far, be regarded as sufficient punishment and the Hon’ble Speaker, Lok Sabha may consider discontinuance/revoking the suspension at the earliest, even without waiting for the House to reassemble for the forthcoming Winter Session in November/December 2023,” the report mentioned.

The Congress chief was suspended from Lok Sabha on August 10 for “repeated misconduct”, pending an investigation by the privileges committee.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi had moved a decision for Chowdhury’s suspension, saying he disturbs the Home at any time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ministers converse or a debate is happening. The decision was handed by a voice vote. Chowdhury had later appeared earlier than the Privileges Committee and expressed remorse over his conduct.
