India’s parliament adjourned after protests over Gandhi expulsion

India’s parliament descended into chaos as lawmakers protested the expulsion of top opposition figure Rahul Gandhi. Gandhi lost his parliamentary seat after being convicted in a case that critics say shows how the rule of law is under threat in India’s largest democracy under Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Protests have erupted in recent weeks over potential links between Modi and tycoon Gautam Adani’s business empire, and comments made by Gandhi that Indian democracy is “under attack”. The opposition has accused Modi’s government of using legal action to silence critics and harass press organizations.
