After the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha leader from the Winter Session on the first day on November 29, the suspended Congress leader of the Upper House Ripun Bora said that it was murder of democracy and constitution, not given opportunity to be heard.

“This is totally undemocratic; murder of democracy and Constitution. We have not been given the opportunity to be heard. This is a one-sided, biased, vindictive decision. Opposition parties haven't been consulted,” Bora said.

“Yes, we had protested in the last session. We had protested for the cause of farmers, the poor people and as Parliamentarians, it is our duty to raise the voices of the oppressed, deprived. If we don't raise the voices in Parliament, where will we do that?” Bora questioned.
