NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha privileges committee meeting was held on November 3 to review the ‘breach of privilege’ case of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MP Raghav Chadha. According to the sources, the committee sought a report from Raghav Chadha by November 7.
The meeting was held in in the Committee Room, Parliament House Annexe Extension Building. The committee is scheduled to meet again on November 8, sources added.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had on October 30 expressed concern over the indefinite suspension of Raghav Chadha and its impact on the right of the people to be represented while calling the exclusion of a member of the political opposition from the house a ‘serious matter.’
A bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra also questioned whether the privileges committee could issue such an order to indefinitely suspend an MP.
