The Congress members, including former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, and former Union Ministers Ghulam nabi Azad, Jairam Ramesh and Ambika Soni, wore black bands on their arms and protested in front the Mahatma Gandhi statue in Parliament complex.

Also, MPs from Samajwadi Party and RJD have joined Congress' protest against suspension of its 25 members from Lok Sabha.

"Many parties like the Trinamool Congress, Left and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have pledged their support to us and said they will boycott Lok Sabha proceeding," Kharge said.

Mahajan yesterday suspended 25 Congress parliamentarians for five days for 'willfully obstructing the business of the house' and not adhering to her repeated warnings for observing rules in the House.
