Parliament Highlights: 12 MPs suspended for unruly conduct
- Parliament winter session 2021: Farmers have been protesting against the three contentious farm laws for nearly a year. They said that they will not end their stir until all their demands are met.
The winter session of Parliament began on Monday but the first day saw several adjournments. The Lok Sabha passed the bill repealing the three farm laws amid sloganeering by the Opposition. Several MPs from the Opposition, including Congress' Rahul Gandhi, criticised passing the bill without debate. The bill was later passed in the Rajya Sabha as well. Ahead of the parliament session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the government is ready to discuss every issue provided the dignity of the Parliament and the Chair is maintained. The Rajya Sabha was adjourned as Opposition MPs entered the well of the Upper House. 12 MPs were suspended for unruly conduct earlier this year in August.
