With the suspension of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's membership in Parliament, the political conflict inside the party has continued. Several states throughout the nation are witnessing protests by Congress leaders. The opposition MPs and Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge appeared in the Parliament on Monday, March 27, wearing all-black attire in solidarity of Rahul Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi also wore a black border saree.

Protestors wore black clothes

According to media sources, the opposition vehemently objected to Rahul Gandhi's membership being revoked and the Adani case in the House. Congress lawmakers waved a black cloth in front of Om Birla, the speaker of the Lok Sabha. Papers were thrown at the speaker by opposition lawmakers as well. He then stood up from his chair and walked out. The Lok Sabha's operations were suspended until 4 p.m. due to this ruckus.

In Mallikarjun Kharge's Parliamentary chamber, opposition parties earlier met. This saw the participation of numerous members of parliament from the Congress, DMK, SP, JDU, BRS, CPM, RJD, NCP, CPI, IUML, MDMK, KC, TMC, RCP, AAP, JKNC, and Shiv Sena (Uddhav group). Most of the leaders showed up to this conference dressed in black. The fact that MPs from the TMC, AAP, and BRS attended this meeting is unique. Several parties had harshly attacked Congress in the recent past.
