New Delhi: The trend of adjournments that started on Day 1 of the monsoon session of the Parliament continues. In fact, since the start of this session, neither House has been able to have an entire day free of interruptions as the Opposition seeks to corner the ruling government on various issues.
On Thursday, both Houses were adjourned till noon as massive protests prevented any discussions. In the Lok Sabha, the Opposition began to protest over various issues, including the ongoing controversy over the Pegasus snooping allegations.
In the Lok Sabha, Congress MP Manickam Tagore gave an adjournment notice for discussion on the farmers’ protest. He also demanded that the government withdraw the new farm laws.
“I hereby give notice of my intention to ask for leave to move a motion for the adjournment of the business of the house for the purpose of discussing a definite matter of urgent importance, namely:- “To discuss about prolonged agitation of farmers against anti-farmers Bill and direct the Government to withdraw it,” Tagore wrote to LS Secretary General.
