New Delhi, Mar. 15 (ANI): Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman K Rehman Khan on Monday revoked the suspension of four Samajwadi Party members who had been punished for unruly behaviour during last week's debate on the over-decade old Women's Reservation Bill before its passing.

Khan rescinded the suspension order after a government resolution for revocation of suspension of the SP members - Veerpal Singh Yadav, Kamal Akhtar, Nand Kishore Yadav, Aamir Alam Khan - was adopted by the House.

Three others - Subhash Yadav (Rashtriya Samajwadi Party), Sabir Ali (Lok Janshakti Party) and Ejaz Ali (unattached),were also suspended along with the SP members till the end of the current session.

All the seven were marshalled out amidst uproar as they protested the Constitutional Amendment Bill, providing for reservation of one-third seats for women in the Lok Sabha and the state Assemblies.

No official reason was cited for revocation of suspension of the SP members. Besides, there was no mention in the resolution about the three other suspended members.

Nand Kishore Yadav had confirmed on March 12 that he and his other party colleagues had met Ansari, but refused to admit that they had apologised. (ANI)
