New Delhi, Sep 21(UNI) Slamming the BJP-led NDA government over suspension of eight Opposition MPs from the Rajya Sabha for their unruly behaviour yesterday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday said that the government's arrogance has brought economic disaster for entire country:

In a post on the social media, Mr Gandhi accused the government of 'muting of Democratic India' by initially silencing and later, suspending MPs in Parliament.

"Muting Of Democratic India’ continues: by initially silencing and later, suspending MPs in the Parliament and turning a blind eye to farmers’ concerns on the black agriculture laws. This ‘omniscient’ Government ’s endless arrogance has brought economic disaster for the entire country,"Mr Gandhi said in a tweet.

His comments came shortly after Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu suspended eight Opposition MPs for creating ruckus in the House on Sunday during the passage of the farm sector bills.

"Derek O Brien, Sanjay Singh, Raju Satav, KK Ragesh, Ripun Bora, Dola Sen, Syed Nazir Hussain and Elamaran Karim suspended for one week for unruly behaviour with the Chair," Naidu said on Monday while suspending the MPs for a week.

The members of the opposition parties had raised an uproar in the Upper House of Parliament on Sunday as Opposition MPs during the passage of the farm sector bills.

The Congress and other Opposition parties have been protesting against the farm bills, which they have described as 'anti-farmer'.

Earlier on Monday, senior Congress leader and former finance minister P Chidambaram slammed the government over the farm bills and questioned how it was planning to guarantee minimum support price (MSP) for farmers.

In a series of tweets, Chidambaram, accusing the government of lying to the farmers that MSP will be ensured to the farmers under the new system, said, 'The Modi government should stop lying to the farmers and making false promises. The promise of guaranteeing MSP in private transactions is like the promise to deposit Rs 15 lakh in the bank account of every Indian.

There will be millions of private transactions every day in thousands of villages all over India. How will the government guarantee MSP is paid in these transactions? Under which law is a private purchaser obliged to pay MSP to the farmer in a private transaction?'

'The PM and other ministers have promised that MSP will be guaranteed to the farmer. Pray tell us HOW? How will the government know which farmer sold what produce to which trader?, 'he asked.
