The Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) parliamentary executive committee is scheduled to meet on Sunday, ahead of the winter session of the Parliament, commencing on November 29. According to sources, on the same day, a meeting of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) floor leaders will also be conducted separately. A party functionary asserted that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be attending both the meetings.
The BJP is preparing to confront a combative opposition in the parliament. Nevertheless, the party leaders opined that Prime Minister’s move to repeal the three central farm laws has taken away the “biggest grouse” which the opposition party had against the government.
Since the three farm laws were passed in the previous year, the opposition parties had held walkouts, raised slogans, and demonstrated, taking the Parliament’s functioning to a standstill. Multiple MPs from the Trinamool Congress (TMC) and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were suspended for a week for their unruly behavior during the house proceedings.
In the upcoming session of the parliament, the government will start the procedures for the withdrawal of the farm laws which were opposed by a large section of farmers in Punjab, Haryana, and other parts of Uttar Pradesh. On 19 November, PM Modi in his address to the nation declared the withdrawal of farm laws. He mentioned that the government has failed to communicate the advantages of the laws to the protesting farmers.
