The house was again adjourned till 12: 30 pm as protests continued and then till 2: 30 pm. The House was again adjourned till 3 pm and then till 3:30 pm and 4 pm . Similar scenes were witnessed in Rajya Sabha where the proceedings were adjourned till 12 noon and then till 2 pm, then till 3 pm and later till 4 pm. Earlier in the day, both the Houses  reconvened today after the session witnessed stormy scenes yesterday as Opposition members protested over the alleged Pegasus snooping row and farm reform laws. The  proceedings were repeatedly adjourned yesterday, as well.  Amid the din, however, the Lok Sabha managed to pass two Bills- The Factoring Regulation (Amendment) Bill, 2020 and the Institute of Food Technology Entrepreneurship and Management Bill, 2021 after which the House was adjourned as protesting MPs demanded a probe into the phone hacking allegations despite repeated requests from the presiding officers. In Rajya Sabha too, the Opposition raised the Pegasus issue, even as chairperson M Venkaiah Naidu expressed concern that 90 members had been denied the opportunity to raise crucial issues in the House due to repeated adjournments on July 26. The House had to be adjourned thrice before proceedings were called off for the day. Leader of the House Piyush Goyal said he had approached the opposition for a cup of tea for an informal discussion but parties refused to turn up. Earlier yesterday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi drove a tractor to Parliament to express support for farmers protesting against the farm reform laws. As many as  69 zero hour mentions, including 12 admitted for July 26, and 23 special mentions by as many members could not be raised during the session so far due to disruptions. Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will move the Bill to amend Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016, be taken into consideration in Lok Sabha today. In the Rajya Sabha, the 308th Report of the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on “Impact of the pandemic on MSME Sector and mitigation strategy adopted to counter it” will be laid. Union Minister Smriti Irani will also move the Bill to amend the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015, as passed by Lok Sabha, to be taken into consideration today.
