Parliament Monsoon Session Highlights: Even as Opposition MPs continued to protest, the Lok Sabha passed the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill 2021 on Wednesday. After resuming proceedings at 3 pm, the House also passed two appropriation bills.
As the standoff in Parliament continues, both the Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha have been adjourned for the day and will resume 11 am, Thursday. The Opposition leaders have been protesting against the Pegasus snooping scandal, farm laws and other issues. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi denied that the Opposition was disturbing Parliament, insisting instead that they were merely “fulfilling our responsibility”.
Earlier today, leaders of Opposition parties held a meeting at Parliament to chalk out the future course of action on several issues in both the Houses. Gandhi also attended the meeting, which was chaired by Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge.
On Wednesday, sources said, all the opposition parties would give adjournment notices in the Lok Sabha on the Pegasus scandal. Sources in the Opposition camp have also claimed that the government side had indicated that it was ready for a discussion on any subject, barring the Pegasus revelations.
