Why do we have to go inside… CISF jawans stopped MP Abdullah from entering the Parliament, opposition parties got angry

New Delhi: Rajya Sabha member M M Abdullah has complained to the Chairman of the Upper House of Parliament Jagdeep Dhankhar about some security personnel allegedly asking him/her the purpose of his/her visit to Parliament. The letter to the Chairman said that at around 2.30 pm on Tuesday, Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) personnel stopped him/her when he/she was entering the Parliament House premises. DMK MP Abdullah was then in a battery-operated vehicle used by MPs for movement within the premises. A copy of the letter has also been sent to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kiren Rijiju and the Secretary General of the Rajya Sabha.

he/she was asked why he/she wanted to go inside the Parliament

Abdullah said he/she was stopped before a security cordon and was asked the purpose of his/her visit and where he/she was going inside the premises. “I am shocked by the behaviour of CISF personnel who questioned me on the purpose of my visit to Parliament, a place where I represent the interests of the people and the state of Tamil Nadu. Such unprecedented misbehaviour has never happened before under the PSS (Parliament Security Service),” he/she said.

Shashi Tharoor objected, TMC also supported him/her

Abdullah said that the chairman should take cognizance of the unprecedented misbehavior by CISF personnel, take action against them and maintain the dignity of the Rajya Sabha and its members. Congress MP Shashi Tharoor objected to the alleged misbehavior with Abdullah. Tharoor said in a post on X that the security of Parliament should not be allowed in the hands of the Union Home Ministry. Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha member Saket Gokhale also supported Abdullah, saying that Parliament is not the personal property of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

Gokhale said-Parliament is not Shah’s personal property

An MP cannot be asked why they are visiting Parliament. As a member of the House, it is our right to be in Parliament, Gokhale said in a post on Instagram. “Is this why CISF has been given the responsibility of guarding Parliament instead of PSS? To stop Indian MPs from performing their duties? Home Minister Amit Shah should understand. Now there is neither ‘400 Paar’ nor ‘300 Paar’. Parliament is not the personal property of Modi or Shah that they can stop and question MPs,” he/she said.
