During Monday’s protest by the Opposition in the House over the Manipur issue, Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar suspended AAP MP Sanjay Singh for the remainder of the Monsoon session in Delhi.

In addition, because of the commotion from the representatives, today’s House session has been postponed till 2 PM. They wanted to hear from the prime minister in the House on the situation in Manipur.

The suspension motion, proposed by House Leader Piyush Goyal, was approved by a voice vote. Rajya Sabha chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar had warned Singh about his “unruly behavior” before the resolution was introduced.
