Parliament Monsoon Session Highlights: The Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha have been adjourned for the day on Tuesday amid continued uproar by Opposition members over the Pegasus snooping row and farm laws. The Lok Sabha has been adjourned till 11 am tomorrow as Opposition MPs raised ‘Khela hobe’ slogans.
As Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha resumed their sessions on Tuesday, heavy sloganeering on the Pegasus snooping and farm laws went on, more prominently in the upper house. Due to this, both houses were adjourned repeatedly, failing to conduct any proper order of business.
Meanwhile, the Parliament on Tuesday passed a bill that will replace an over nine-decade-old law governing lighthouses and provide a fresh framework to establish and manage vessel traffic services.
Rajya Sabha gave its nod to the Marine Aids to Navigation Bill, 2021, which also changes the use of the term marine aids to navigation, amid continuing protests by the opposition members over the Pegasus snooping allegations and other issues. It has already been passed by Lok Sabha on March 22, 2021, in the last session.
