STATEMENT OF RAGHAV CHADHA ON SUSPENSION FROM RAJYA SABHA


My suspension serves as a stark message from the BJP to today's youth: If you dare to ask questions, we will crush your voice. I was suspended for asking tough questions that left the BJP, the world's largest party, without answers through my speech in Parliament on Delhi Service Bill. My crime was exposing BJP's double standards on Delhi's statehood and asking them to follow "Advani-vaad" and "Vajpayee-vad." The fact that a 34-year-old MP showed them a mirror and held them accountable, left them scarred.

By suspending a young and effective member of parliament based on false allegations, the government's actions unmistakably signal an alarming stance that reeks of being anti-youth and undermines the very foundation of fair representation and democratic values. The suspension of AAP and other INDIA MPs highlights the alarming trend in Parliament, where the BJP blurs the lines between fact and fiction to silence the opposition. The way in which the BJP orchestrated the suspension of Rahul Gandhi from Parliament indicates their willingness to employ similar tactics to suspend and subsequently expel any AAP MP without hesitation.

This monsoon session saw an unprecedented abuse of power by the government. Microphones were forcibly silenced and the voice of opposition ruthlessly quashedm with 3 MPs from AAP alone being suspended. The BJP, wielding its formidable power, has shown a disturbing willingness to employ any means necessary to suppress dissenting voices. Weaponizing tools like suspension there are attempting to silence us.

The suspensions of MPs have exposed the BJP's increasing desperation. Over this week, I have received two notices from the privilege committe, which is unprecedented. It's clear that the BJP is weakened and is increasingly resorting to political vendettas. Their actions are aimed at quelling our voices, but they will inevitably fail to suppress the resounding chorus of the people of India. While they may have succeeded in suspending us, it is the collective will of the people that will ultimately unseat them from their position of power.

I belong to the land of Shaheed-e-Azam Bhagat Singh. I will strongly present my case before the privilege committee and seek justice. If those who orchestrated this suspension thought they could suppress my commitment to serving the people and upholding the constitution, they are gravely mistaken.

I will not be silenced. I will continue to stand for justice, truth, and the rights of the people. This suspension only strengthens my resolve to fight for what is right, to expose the manipulation of power, and to ensure that the voices of those who put their trust in me are heard. The country, especially the youth, clearly sees through the BJP's charade. This suspension is merely a temporary setback; I will return stronger, more determined, and even more resolute in my pursuit of saving India's democracy.

It is abundantly clear that suggesting the names of MPs for select committees does not necessitate the acquisition of their signatures or written consent, as I have repeatedly mentioned. It is only a mere proposal, with some proposed MP names. If anyone wishes to withdraw their name, they can. Nowhere in Piyush Goyal's motion for suspension or in nnotice served by the Privilege Committee has mentioned the words “fraud”, "forgery" or "fake" "farziwada" or even for that matter the word “Signature” is not mentioned. It doesn't even remotely allege anything to this effect.

I challenge the BJP to produce the alleged document with wrongful signatures.

Some BJP MPs and their propaganda machinery have falsely accused me, using the above-mentioned derogatory terms without evidence. This shows the entire controversy was manufactured to suspend me from the Rajya Sabha and tarnish my reputation. I reiterate that the allegations of wrongful signatures are completely baseless. There has been no mention of any forgery or fake signature; the media is requested to abstain from using the same, and report responsibly.
