Amid protests, govt to end Parliament session today

New Delhi: The monsoon session of Parliament is most likely to be concluded today. Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs V Muraleedharan has said that the government has decided to recommend adjournment of Parliament’s proceedings today.

But before this, some important issues have to be settled in the Lok Sabha.

Opposition parties will meet President Ram Nath Kovind on Wednesday amid the ongoing row over farm bills. Only five opposition leaders will be allowed to meet the President at 5 PM , reports said.

On Tuesday, the opposition boycotted the ongoing session over Centre’s refusal to accept its demand for withdrawal of farm bills passed by Parliament.

On Sunday, the Rajya Sabha passed two key farm bills – Farmer’s Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020) through voice vote.
