New Delhi: Congress MPs will continue their protest at the Gandhi statue in the Parliament premises today against the suspension of the party's 25 lawmakers from the Lok Sabha.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had earlier this week suspended the MPs over disruption of parliamentary proceedings under ruling 374 (A), leading to outrage from various quarters.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament has remained at a logjam with the opposition led by the Congress, demanding the resignation of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje who have been drawing flak over former IPL chief Lalit Modi controversy.
