Monsoon Session highlights| Both Houses adjourned till tomorrow

Monsoon session highlights: The Monsoon Session of Parliament entered the seventh day on Tuesday, with proceedings beginning at 11am. A day ago, both the houses assembled at 2pm following the oath-taking ceremony of Droupadi Murmu, country's first President from the tribal community. She is also the second woman to hold the top constitutional post in the country. However, proceedings in Parliament remained paralysed as the stalemate over the Opposition's demand for immediate discussions on price rise and GST hike in both Houses deepened with four Congress members suspended in the Lok Sabha for the rest of the session for causing disruptions. In the past week as well, both houses had seen abrupt disruptions and adjournments following a ruckus created by the Opposition parties that sought to corner the Centre on a number of issues, including inflation, unemployment and the Agnipath military recruitment scheme.
