Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh on Monday announced a probe into the complaints of at least four MPs that their names were included in a proposed select committee of the House for the Delhi Services Bill without their consent.
The select committee was proposed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Raghav Chadha in the Upper House to examine the Delhi Services Bill. After the deputy chairman read out the names to be included in the proposed select committee, Home Minister Amit Shah informed that five members have complained that their names were included without their signatures in the proposal moved by the AAP leader.
Shah immediately demanded that this issue be investigated. Terming it a breach of privilege of the House, he said the matter should be referred to the privileges committee.
“Who all have signed on their behalf is a subject of investigation,” he said and requested the Chair to record the statements of the complainant members.
