Parliament Winter Session 2021 Updates: The third day of Parliament’s Winter Session saw less business and more uproar by the Opposition, who continued to protest over the suspension of twelve Rajya Sabha MPs for the “violent and unruly behaviour” conducted by them in the Monsoon Session. The proceedings of the Rajya Sabha were adjourned for the day on Wednesday amid unrelenting protests by opposition members over the issue of suspension of 12 MPs. Upper House Chairman Venkaiah Naidu refused to revoke their suspension since the MPs did not offer apology for the misconduct.
The Opposition is also expected to corner the government today over the farmers’ pressing demand of assurance of fair MSP, after the repeal of the three contentious farm laws. A discussion is also expected on the COVID-19 situation in the county amid fears over the Omicron variant.
