The Lower House witnessed noisy scenes as members of the Congress and some other Opposition parties were in the Well raising slogans against the government and protesting lynching incidents in the name of cow protection nearly since the House assembled in the morning.

The protesting Opposition members, including Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi, demanded that the Speaker reconsider the suspension of the six MPs: Gaurav Gogoi, Sushmita Dev, Ranjeet Ranjan, Adhir Ranjan Choudhry, K Suresh and MK Raghavan. MPs being suspended is a shame to the Congress Party.

"I told them they can raise the issues they want but only after the Question Hour", she told reporters outside the House.

"Not allowed to discuss #MobLynching today #LokSabha witnessed unprecedented noisy seen. members suspended". It is not true that we (Congress) do not allow the House to function.
