Trinamool Congress MP Derek O'Brien on Tuesday took a jibe at the BJP over the suspension of 14 MPs, saying two impeccably well-behaved Members of Parliament continue to grace the Lok Sabha -- Ramesh Bidhuri and Brij Bhushan Singh -- and maybe the government wants all in Opposition to behave like them to avoid suspension from Parliament.

In a post on X, O'Brien who was also suspended from remainder of Winter Session, said, "Two impeccably well-behaved Members of Parliament continue to grace the Lok Sabha -- Ramesh Bidhuri and Brij Bhushan Singh. Maybe the Modi government wants all of us in Opposition to behave like them to avoid suspension from Parliament."

The remarks of the Trinamool Congress leader came in context of suspensions of MPs during the recently concluded Parliament Winter Session.

At least 14 MPs still remain suspended pending the report of the Privileges Committee to be submitted in three months. The suspension of 132 out of 146 MPs were revoked when winter session ended.
