The Congress urged the government to ensure accountability and requested a statement from Home Minister Amit Shah in both parliamentary houses concerning the “significant security breach” in Lok Sabha. Highlighting that the incident revealed shortcomings in precautions, the party raised concerns about the sufficiency of security measures.

The breach entailed individuals releasing yellow gas in the Lok Sabha chamber and chanting slogans, resulting in a subsequent protest walkout by Congress members in the Rajya Sabha.

AICC general secretary Jairam Ramesh said in a post on X, “Indian parties walked out of the Rajya Sabha this afternoon due to the highly unusual incidents in the Lok Sabha and the Home Minister’s refusal to make a statement on the matter. It is a serious matter that such a huge lapse in security occurred on the day of the attack on Parliament twenty-two years ago”, (translated from hindi).

The Congress put out a post showing the picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP MP Pratap Simha saying, “Infiltration in Parliament on the pass of BJP MP Pratap Simha”.

According to reports, the two individuals linked to the Lok Sabha incident have been recognized as Sagar Sharma and Manoranjan. Sharma attended the visitor’s gallery as a guest of Simha.

In a post on X, Mallikarjun Kharge, the party president and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, emphasized that the security breach in Parliament is an extremely grave matter.

He wrote, “Today itself, on Martyr’s Day, we paid tribute to the brave security personnel who attacked the Parliament 22 years ago. We hope that the government will take this very seriously and we demand a thorough investigation into the entire incident. We are always ready for the unity and integrity of the country”.
