    On Monday, several opposition MPs wore black clothes and marched from parliament to Vijay Chowk to protest against the government over the Adani issue and Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from the Lok Sabha. The Trinamool Congress, which had previously stayed away from opposition protests, joined the sit-in on Monday. During the protest, Congress MPs hurled papers towards the Chair and opposition members in Lok Sabha stormed the Well wearing black clothes. The protesters, including Congress MP Sonia Gandhi and party chief Mallikarjun Kharge, gathered near the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in the Parliament complex and raised slogans against the government.

    The MPs proceeded towards Vijay Chowk holding a huge “Satyamev Jayate” banner and placards with “save democracy” written on them, where they staged a sit-in. Kharge spoke to reporters at Vijay Chowk and questioned how Adani’s wealth had multiplied so much in recent years. He also raised the issue of Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as MP after a Surat court convicted and sentenced him in a 2019 criminal defamation case.

    The opposition has been seeking a joint parliamentary committee probe into the allegations of corporate fraud and stock price manipulations against the Adani Group. Kharge demanded a JPC on the Adani issue and questioned why the government was not agreeing to this. He also accused the prime minister of “finishing” democracy and said that opposition MPs were dressed in black to symbolize this.

    Earlier, MPs of various opposition parties, including Congress, TMC, BRS, and SP, met at the Parliament complex to discuss a strategy to take forward the Adani issue as well as Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification matter in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha.
