The Rajya Sabha on Monday said it had not revoked the suspension of Aam Aadmi Party MP Raghav Chadha over alleged breach of privileges. “There is no revocation of suspension. He has been held guilty by the committee and punished. The committee said his suspension for last more than three months (suspended on August 11) till date is enough punishment and therefore, he can now attend the proceedings of the House,” sources in Rajya Sabha told HT. Chadha in a video message had thanked the Supreme Court and Rajya Sabha chairperson Jagdeep Dhankhar and claimed his suspension was revoked. “On 11th August, I was suspended from the Rajya Sabha. I went to the Supreme Court for the revocation of my suspension. Supreme Court took cognizance of this and now my suspension has been revoked after 115 days…I am happy that my suspension has been roved and I want to thank the Supreme Court and Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar,” he added.

Following the five MPs’ complaint, the matter was referred to the privileges committee, and Chadha was placed under suspension until the committee’s final report was received.Rajya Sabha chairperson Jagdeep Dhankhar said,”As regards the sentence, the committee finds the suspension suffered by him since 11th August 2023 from the house thus far as the sufficient sentence that will meet the ends of justice.”

“The committee stands committed to upholding the sanctity of Parliamentary proceedings and safeguarding the integrity of the institution. The committee expresses hope that Raghav Chadha will reflect and introspect,” ANI quoted Dhankhar as saying.
