New Delhi, Sep 23 (TIWN) The suspended MPs who are going back to their states after the Upper House adjourned sine die on Wednesday promised to scale up their protest when they reach their home states.

“Yes, our suspension was a murder of democracy. But the bigger issue at hand is the anti-farmer agri bills passed by the Centre. The merit of this issue has reached another level. Protests and agitations will spread across states, districts, fields and farmlands of India,” TMC MP Dola Sen told IANS. She was one among the 8 Rajya Sabha members who was suspended for creating a ruckus in the Rajya Sabha on Sunday.  The CPI-M’s Elamaram Karim, another suspended MP who hails from the Left ruled Kerala, said “The undemocratic behaviour and anti-people policies of the Modi government will be exposed in public.” 

Karim, who was part of the unprecedented overnight sit-in protest in front of Parliament’s iconic Gandhi statue, said that the “fight” is far from over and will intensify in the coming days.  The TMC’s Derek O’Brien who has made his Twitter DP scream “You can suspend me, you cannot silence me” has already spoken to his party leader Mamata Banerjee about the developments in Delhi and the party is preparing to stage elaborate protests in West Bengal, where it is in power. Banerjee said that the fight will continue against the “fascist government in Parliament and on the streets”. O’Brien and Sen are both likely to take the lead along with Banerjee.
