Punishment for Alleged "Cash for Questions"

Some in India believe the punishment is too harsh and they are protesting. (See The Hindu here)  It seems that the media conducted their own undercover sting operation and filmed several members of parliament in an alleged "cash for questions scam." (allegedly they took cash for asking questions in Parliament) (See NYTimes here).  The result is that 11 members of the Parliament were expelled for conduct that is "unethical and unbecoming."   According to the Times of India (here) one member of Parliament wants a chance to present a defense.
