Mallikarjun Kharge, Rajya Sabha Opposition Leader Criticises Govt For Blocking Bill Discussion
Earlier today, the Rajya Sabha's Opposition leader and #Congress MP Mallikarjun Kharge said that "we want a full discussion" on the farming laws repeal bill and said that earlier motions to repeal bills and laws had also been concluded after due discussion. He said that the discussions would have brought to light other related issues for #farmers such as #MSP as legal guarantee, 700 farmers' deaths during the year-long farmers' protest movement, and the #LakhimpurKheri incident.
The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned along wth the Lower House until Tuesday morning. Towards the end of the day, 12 Rajya Sabha MPs were suspended for the rest of the entire Winter Session. All of those MPs are from Opposition parties and were dismissed under Rule 256 of Rules Of Procedure and Conduct of Business for "unprecedented unruly behaviour" that affronted the dignity of the House.
