As per news report of The Indian Express, “Today, we had to come out here to speak to you (media) as we (Opposition) are not allowed to speak in the Parliament. This is a murder of democracy. The Parliament session is over. As far as 60 per cent of the country is concerned, there was no Parliament session. Voice of 60 percent population was crushed, humiliated in Parliament,” Gandhi said. Top leaders of several opposition parties met in the chamber of Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and then walked in protest from Parliament House to Vijay Chowk. Those who attended the meeting included Gandhi, Sharad Pawar, Kharge, Sanjay Raut, Manoj Jha and other opposition leaders.
