Against the backdrop of the ongoing farmers’ agitation in Delhi, the government has decided not to convene a winter session of Parliament this year. For this, the central government has informed about this decision based on the growing number of corona cases in Delhi. The government’s Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi has also said that there will be no winter session this year. However, Congress says the government does not want to hold the meeting under any circumstances. This is happening because the government also knows that the problems of the farmers will come up as soon as the House moves. Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury (Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury) has also said that Pakistan is also trying to interfere in the peasant movement, which needs to be discussed in the House.
Informing that the winter session was not over on Tuesday, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said, “We are now preparing for the direct budget session next year.” Speaking to the media, he said, ‘Several leaders have suggested to me that we should speak directly to the budget session. This is also because we have all recently seen a convention in the hall.
‘.. So why did the Congress hold the September session first?’
Joshi further said, “Given the growing number of Kovid cases in Delhi, we should go directly to the budget session,” he said. To those in Congress who are now demanding a new session of Parliament, I would like to ask why they convened the session first in September and now they are demanding a new session.
Pakistan is trying to intervene
Reacting to the Centre’s decision, Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary said that the issue of farmers has become serious. Pakistan is also trying to intervene. In view of all this, I had requested that a session of Parliament should be convened and the issues of the farmers should be discussed. Chaudhary further said, “I don’t think the government wants to run the House under any circumstances.” Because as soon as the hall moves, the question of farmers will come to the fore.
State governments and farmers also demanded discussion
I tell you that all the Opposition parties, including the Congress, had demanded that the Center convene a special session of Parliament to discuss the Agriculture Bill and to repeal these laws. The demand of the Congress came during the farmers’ movement in Delhi, in which thousands of farmers are participating. Several state governments and farmers’ organizations have also demanded that the Center convene a convention to discuss the bill. However, now that the decision has been taken not to hold a winter session, there have been attacks from the opposition by the Center.
