“Rahul Gandhi is a staunch follower of truth, unity, communal harmony and democracy. He carries forward the legacy of great leaders who sacrificed to keep India united and strong,” he said.
Alemao condemned the act of the BJP government of suspending the Members of Parliament.
State Congress President Amit Patkar said that the BJP government is trying to suppress the voice of the people. He condemned the act of the local BJP unit of burning effigy of Rahul Gandhi in the presence of two cabinet ministers.
Congress MLA Carlos Ferreira demanded action against the BJP MP who issued passes to the two accused persons, who breached the security and entered Parliament.
He also said that the amendments to Criminal Laws passed by Parliament are draconian.

Trinamool Congress office-bearer Tanoj Adwalpalkar also condemned the suspension of the MPs and said that the united opposition will work to protect democracy.
