Highlights: Lok Sabha adjourned for the day after witnessing multiple disruption
On the third day of the Budget session on Tuesday, the Rajya Sabha witnessed dramatic scenes over the three contentious farm laws. Opposition parties including the Congress, TMC and DMK staged a walkout from the Upper House as their demand for suspension of business of the day was rejected by Rajya Sabha chairman Venkaiah Naidu. The opposition parties had demanded that the business of the day be suspended in order to discuss the three farm bills which led to the farmers’ agitation. This House was then adjourned and the proceedings will resume at 9am on Wednesday.
27 bills which were passed by the Houses of Parliament during the fourth session of the 17th Lok Sabha were to be tabled in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday but multiple disruptions resulted in the Lower House being adjourned till tomorrow.
