Mayawati quits Rajya Sabha, says she was muzzled

Post By Editor Intelligent India · On July 18, 2017



In a dramatic development, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati resigned from the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday evening after complaining that her voice was being muzzled, as both Houses of Parliament adjourned for the day after frequent disruptions by the Opposition.

Ms. Mayawati, who has nine months to go before her current term in the Rajya Sabha ends, quit after she was told not to stretch the time allotted for her impromptu speech on atrocities against the Dalits in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur.

Deputy chairperson of the Rajya Sabha, P.J. Kurien, allowed Ms. Mayawati to speak first but cautioned her against breaching the three-minute time slot allocated to her.
