Monsoon session ends amid suspensions & boycotts; upset Oppn meets President

The monsoon session of the Parliament, held under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic, is ending earlier than planned amid a surge in infections. But rather than the unprecedented precautions and measures taken inside the two Houses, this session might be remembered for the fierce face-off between the treasury and Opposition benches, especially over the manner of passing of two controversial agricultural reform bills. The political clash caused by the fracas in the Rajya Sabha, the suspension of some Opposition MPs, the rejected motion against the Deputy Chairman, and the boycott of proceedings is now reaching the President of India's doorstep. Opposition parties are approaching the President, accusing the government of trampling on Parliamentary tradition while pushing through a number of legislations. Watch Hindustan Times senior editor Aditi Prasad decode the significance of this short, yet stormy Parliament session with deputy political editor Saubhadra Chatterji.

While speaking to ANI in the national capital on September 23, the Union Minister of Women and Child Development, Smriti Irani spoke on agriculture reform bills recently passed in Parliament. She said, "Congress in its 10 years in power didn't implement the Swaminathan Committee Report. Modi Government implemented the report and gave 1.5 times higher Minimum Support Price (MSP). Under Kisan Samman Nidhi Scheme, more than Rs 90,000 crore was transferred in the accounts of more than 10 crore farmers." "Narendra Modi government is committed to implementing the Swaminathan Commission Report. The government announced the MSP rates for 2020-21 in the Parliament. It is our constitutional promise to the farmers. MSP system will continue," Smriti Irani added. "It is clear that the Narendra Modi government is committed to farmers' welfare. We have to understand that when the government says something in the Parliament, it is a sovereign promise to people of the nation," Smriti Irani further stated.
