Recent Developments in Parliamentary Committees:
Notably, Rinku emerged victorious in the Jalandhar Lok Sabha bypoll, representing the singular AAP presence in the Lower House. Additionally, NCP’s Faizal P P Mohammed, whose Lok Sabha membership was restored in March, has secured a nomination to the committee on consumer affairs, food, and public distribution. Rahul Gandhi, prior to his disqualification in March, was already a part of the parliamentary panel on defence.
The restoration of his Lok Sabha membership on August 7 followed the Supreme Court’s suspension of his conviction in a 2019 defamation case related to his ‘Modi surname’ comments. The disqualification stemmed from a Gujarat court’s conviction, imposing a two-year prison sentence, automatically triggering lawmaker disqualification for terms of two years or more. Gandhi represents Wayanad in the Lok Sabha.
