Parliament will hold a discussion on the Delhi Violence on March 11, a day after Holi.

The Parliamentary proceedings have been halted for several times this week as opposition party leaders continue to cause a ruckus.

The opposition party members have constantly demanded a discussion on the Delhi violence and also demanded the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.

However, the Government has finally agreed to hold the discussion on March 11.

The Home Minister will make a statement in both the houses of the Parliament.

On Thursday, Lok Sabha speaker, Om Birla, suspended seven Congress MPs for the rest of the ongoing Budget Session.

The suspended members include Gaurav Gogoi, TN Prathapan, Dean Kuriakose, Benny Behananm, Manickam Tagore, Rajmohan Unnithan and Gurjeet Singh Aujla.

“7 of our MPs were suspended for the entire Budget session, yesterday. We don’t know on what basis was this done? This is not a minor thing; We only want a discussion on the issue of Delhi violence,” Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said in the Lok Sabha.

The Parliamentary session, which resumed on March 2, will conclude on April 3.

The Delhi Violence, which took place in several parts of north-East Delhi, took the lives of 53 people, while more than 200 were left wounded.

The Delhi Police has lodged 123 FIRs and 630 people have been arrested.
