On Wednesday in the Indian Parliament, the opposition parties raised their voice against the widespread Pegasus controversy, farm laws, and other major issues.
Some members even hurled papers and tore placards in the house. The Central government however was successful in passing three bills. The recurring sloganeering and disruption caused by the opposition parties lead to the adjournment of the house multiple times. The adjournment of the house has been continuing for over one week now.
As the Parliament proceedings began in the house, Opposition parties raised slogans against the controversial farm laws that were passed in the Parliament last year. The Pegasus controversy has lead to a political storm in the nation. Not a day has gone by when this issue was not raised. Other issues like the rise in fuel prices were also raised.
Despite the disruption, the Question hour was completed. Om Birla speaker of the Lok Sabha continued with the Question hour despite the ruckus. After the Question hour was completed with the adjournment, Om Birla left the house. Rajendra Agarwal took over the session after Birla left.
Rajendra Agarwal continues the Parliament session even when MPs Gurjeet Aujla and Hibi Eden threw paper and placards during the proceedings. The house has adjourned the parliament till 12:30 PM in the afternoon and after a few more adjournments the House was adjourned for the day.
