Monsoon Session: Government’s Agenda for Next Week and Unrest in Parliament!!
The ongoing Monsoon session of the Parliament has witnessed several important developments, with a few Bills being passed in both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.
However, the session has been marked by a logjam due to the Opposition’s demand for a discussion on the Manipur issue and their call for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make a comprehensive statement on the matter.
The no-confidence motion moved by the INDIA block has added to the strategic pressure on the PM Modi-led government to initiate a discussion.
This update will cover the recent developments and highlight a few key events from Thursday’s session:
Unrest in Parliament: Opposition’s Protests and No-Confidence Motion. The parliament witnessed high-decibel unrest, particularly in the upper House, with Opposition MPs resorting to sloganeering and displaying placards.
This led to a walkout by the Opposition members. The situation prompted Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar to remind the members about maintaining decorum in the House.
As a mark of protest, the INDIA bloc-led Opposition alliance entered the parliament wearing black clothes on Thursday. They also boycotted a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of the Rajya Sabha before the House proceedings began.
