     Ajit Jogi, Dharamjeet Singh, Nand Kumar Patel and Tamradhwaj Sahu, all Congress, also raised the issue.

    After hearing the points of Parliamentary Affairs Minister Brij Mohan Agrawal, Speaker Dharam Lal Kaushik said the adjournment motion should have been taken on the first day of this session but due to the negative attitude of the Congress members that never happened even after the next day.

     On July 23 also the Congress members continued with their slogan shouting and when he was taking up the matter, the Congress members entered the well of the house and got themselves suspended, Kaushik said.

     Since he had to take a decision on that matter, he listened to the reply from the government and then rejected that.
