New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh on Wednesday has been suspended from the Upper House for the remaining part of the current week for shouting slogans, tearing papers and throwing them toward the Chair yesterday. 

Singh is the 20th MP from the Upper House who has been suspended for disrupting proceedings. This is the highest number of single-batch suspensions in the Upper House.

Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh announced the suspension of the AAP leader, saying Sanjay Singh is being suspended from the House for the remaining part of this week for disrupting House proceedings on Tuesday and showing disregard to the chair.

It was mentioned during his suspension that Singh threw paper at the chair on Tuesday during proceedings of the House.

The suspension of Singh followed a motion moved by Junior minister of parliamentary affairs V. Muraleedharan for the "misconduct" and "utter disregard to the House and authority of the Chair". The motion was carried out by a voice vote.

The move comes a day after Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman suspended 19 Opposition MPs from the House for the remainder of this week for repeatedly disrupting proceedings. (with ANI inputs)
