The marginalisation of parliamentary democracy is not a by-product of arrogance but is integral to Modi’s thinking, writes TMC MP @jawharsircar on recent events in the Rajya Sabha.

Good on you, Priyanka. Now that leaves one MP from the Opposition as a host. I hope he too snubs this Government who are mocking #Parliament every day. And worse still, justifying the mocking.

It is with anguish that I step down as anchor of @sansad_tv’s show Meri Kahani,I am unwilling to occupy space on Sansad TV for a show but denied space on it fr discharging parliament duties due to arbitrary suspension.Hence as much as I was committed to the show,I must step away.

We appeal to the presiding officers of both Houses in #Parliament to rectify television coverage. All Opposition protests are CENSORED on TV. @AITCofficial demands this TV CENSORSHIP MUST BE STOPPED. This Govt is turning Parliament into a secret chamber. One min video
