Parliament Winter Session Highlights: 12 Opposition MPs suspended for 'unprecedented acts of misconduct' in last Session of Parliament

Winter Session Highlights: The government passed the Bill to repeal the three farm laws today even as the Opposition demanded a discussion and pushed for a law on minimum support price on agriculture produce.

Parliament Winter Session Highlights: The Winter Session of Parliament began today (November 29) with the government listing a bill to repeal the three farm laws on the first day itself even as the Opposition plans to push for a law on minimum support price on agriculture produce. The Farm Laws Repeal Bill is slated to be introduced in Lok Sabha on November 29. Opposition parties have raised the issue of legal backing for MSP at an all-party meet called by the government ahead of
the session. While Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not present at the all-party meeting convened by the government, Defence Minister and Deputy Leader of Lok Sabha Rajnath Singh sought cooperation from all parties for productive and smooth functioning of the House. Besides the repeal bill, the government has listed 25 draft legislations for the session, including one to ban all but a few private cryptocurrencies while allowing an official digital currency by the RBI. A Joint Committee of Parliament report on the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 will also be tabled in the two Houses during the session. The bill was brought in Parliament in 2019 and was referred to the committee for further scrutiny on demand of opposition members. The session will conclude on December 23.

    Parliament Winter Session LIVE Updates | This is totally undemocratic; murder of democracy & Constitution. We've not been given the opportunity to be heard. This is a one-sided, biased, vindictive decision. Opposition parties haven't been consulted, says Congress MP Ripun Bora-one of the 12 RS MPs suspended for this session. Yes, we had protested in the last session. We had protested for the cause of farmers, the poor people and as Parliamentarians, it is our duty to raise the voices of the oppressed, deprived. If we don't raise the voices in Parliament, where will we do that?

    Parliament Winter Session LIVE Updates | From Dist Court to Supreme Court, an accused is heard even there, lawyers are provided for them too, sometimes Govt officials are sent to take their version. Here our version wasn't taken, says Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi - one of the 12 Rajya Sabha MPs suspended for this session. If you see the CCTV footage it has been recorded how male marshals were jostling female MPs. All of this on one side & your decision on the other? What kind of unparliamentary behaviour is this?

    Parliament Winter Session LIVE Updates | Bill passed in absolute chaos, special Parliament protection bill should now be passed, says Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan

    In so many years that I've been here, this is the first time I'm seeing this kind of environment. Bill was passed in absolute chaos. I feel that a special Parliament protection bill should now be passed. Small parties don't get the chance to speak, said SP MP Jaya Bachchan. They should've talked about the loss of people, the strikes, & the rising vegetable prices. What is this government doing? How will we eat? The water is polluted, the air is polluted, how will we live?, she further added.

    Parliament Winter Session LIVE Updates | Govt scared of holding a discussion, says Rahul Gandhi 

    Earlier, we had said that the govt will have to withdraw the farm laws, and today these laws were repealed. It is unfortunate that the farm laws were repealed without discussion. This government is scared of holding a discussion, says Rahul Gandhi. The fact is that the Central government could not face the strength of the Indian people represented by farmers in this case. The upcoming State elections must have also played on their mind, he further said.
