Speaker Sumitra Mahajan asked Mallikarjun Kharge to conclude his speech.
"Kharge ji, you were given 10 minutes to make your point. I didn't say anything when you stretched it to 20 minutes, but you have now taken more than 35 minutes. This is not done. Everyone is listening to you patiently. The Union Home Minister is also here and your concerns have been heard adequately. I think you should conclude in the next 60 seconds so that others also get a chance to speak. It is only fair that they get to speak as well." she said.

This encourages them that no matter what they do, they can go Scot-free because no action will be taken against them... at best people will come and say a few words condemning it. So what is the message that your inaction is giving the - Think about it, and do something. Do it soon." Mallikarjun Kharge futher adds.

There was a mob lynching incident the same day that the Prime Minister spoke out against such incidents. He said that swift and strict action will be taken, but what happened?
