Indefinite suspension of an MP could have very serious repercussions for people's right to be represented by a person of their choice, the Supreme Court has said, and asked whether the Privileges Committee of Parliament could order AAP lawmaker Raghav Chadha's suspension from the Rajya Sabha for an unspecified duration. The top court said the exclusion of a member of the opposition from the House just because of a perspective which may not be consistent with the viewpoint of the government is a serious issue.
