Bill for withdrawal of agricultural laws passed in Lok Sabha amid uproar
The bill introduced by Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar regarding the withdrawal of agricultural laws was passed in the Lok Sabha. While the opposition was creating a ruckus regarding the demand for discussion, the bill was passed by the House in the midst of the uproar. Before the start of the winter session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said that the central government is ready to have an open discussion on every topic and answer every question. However, the government asked the opposition to get this bill passed without any discussion. At the same time, the opposition, adamant on the demand of discussion, was not in any mood to let this issue go cheaply.
In the meeting of the Business Advisory Committee of the people, the opposition said that if there is no discussion, then Parliament will not be allowed to run, on which the government said that we are abolishing the law, then what is the need for discussion. On the first day of the winter session, the opposition split in the Lok Sabha over the demand for discussion on agricultural laws. Congress and TMC demanded discussion on the bill to repeal 3 agricultural laws. However, instead of discussing this bill, the central government persisted on introducing it directly and getting it passed by voice vote.
The divided opposition could not discuss
However, among the opposition parties, the BSP led by Mayawati and the leaders of Biju Janata Dal were in favor of the government’s argument. These leaders have said that instead of discussing the bill to repeal agricultural laws, it should be passed soon. However, most of the parties were demanding discussion on the bill. Due to this, there was a lot of uproar in both the houses of Parliament. However, this bill was passed in the Lok Sabha amid heavy uproar.
There should be questions in Parliament, there should be peace in Parliament.
Before the commencement of the session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “May this Parliament session be rich in ideas and create far-reaching effects.” In the nectar festival of independence, we would also like that there should be a question in the Parliament, there should be peace in the Parliament. As loud as the voice should be against the policies of the government, but regarding the dignity of the Parliament, the dignity of the Speaker, we should conduct that which will be useful to the young generation of the country in the coming days.
