Watch: TMC MP Derek O'Brien's silent protest after suspension from Rajya Sabha

Trinamool Congress MP Derek O'Brien held a silent protest in the Parliament complex after being suspended from the Rajya Sabha for "unruly behaviour" and "misconduct".

After O'Brien continued to sit in the House despite his suspension, the leader of the House Piyush Goyal moved a resolution under Rule 192 to refer the issue to the committee of privileges of the Rajya Sabha.

It was immediately taken up by the chairman and passed by a voice vote.

"The motion is adopted. The matter stands referred to the committee of privileges of the Rajya Sabha for examination, investigation and report within a period of three months," Dhankhar said.

He again urged O'Brien to leave the house, but the latter did not oblige.

The opposition members continued with their protest and amidst the uproar, the chairman adjourned the House proceedings till Friday.
