Parliament Convenes Day After Uproar In Both Houses Over Farm Laws

New Delhi:

Proceedings of Rajya Sabha began on Friday morning as the House continues the discussion on motion of thanks on the President’s address.

The Parliament convened today a day after Lok Sabha proceedings were disrupted for the third consecutive day on Thursday due to protests by opposition members over the three new farms laws. However, amid repeated adjournments the government managed to introduce a bill and the House took up the Zero Hour where various members raised issues related to their states and constituencies.

During the Question Hour, which takes place soon after the House convenes, Union minister Nitin Gadkari replied to a few questions related to the ministry of roads and highways.

But as opposition members continued with their protest by trooping into the Well of the House, the proceedings were adjourned.

Here are the live updates on Parliament proceedings:

Discussion on motion of thanks to President’s address in Rajya Sabha
Proceedings of Rajya Sabha began on Friday morning as the House continues the discussion on motion of thanks on the President’s address.

“Some of the members exceeded their time yesterday so that time will be reduced from their party’s quota. This has to be understood by all,” said Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu.

Meanwhile, BJP MP Mahesh Poddar has given a short duration discussion notice in Rajya Sabha over ”efficient handling of COVID-19 situation in the country”.

BJP has issued a three-line whip to its Rajya Sabha MPs to be present in the House from Feb 8 to Feb 12 to support government’s stand.
