On 21 December, the TMC MP had been suspended from the Rajya Sabha for the remaining part of the current Session for ‘unruly behaviour’ in the House.
According to news agency ANI, he allegedly threw the Rajya Sabha Rule Book towards the Chair during the discussion on Election Laws (Amendment Bill) 2021.
Earlier today, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly admitted to a Kolkata hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.
Ganguly is double vaccinated and has been travelling extensively, taking part in all professional activities.
