The Winter session of the parliament commenced on November 29. Following the first day’s session, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed the ruling government for its failure to maintain the rights of discussion in the Parliament. In addition, he termed the government as a “coward”.
Taking to the social media site, Rahul Gandhi said, “Not allowed to discuss on MSP, on justice for the martyr Annadata, on the dismissal of the Union Minister in the Lakhimpur case….who snatched the right of discussion from the Parliament, It is a failure, that government is a coward.”
The bill meant to revoke the three central farm laws was initiated by agriculture minister Narendra Singh Tomar. The opposition members urged for discussions on the bill. Nevertheless, the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021 was passed in the Lok Sabha without any discussion. Successively, the bill will now be taken up by the Rajya Sabha.
