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