Govt to blame for 'hungama': Opposition on Parliament ruckus after Prez meet
Opposition parties tried to corner the government over farm bills by meeting the President of India.
Opposition leaders urged President Ram Nath Kovind to not give assent to controversial bills.
The meeting took place days after massive fracas in Rajya Sabha for which 8 MPs were suspended.
The opposition blamed the government for commotion, while seeking fresh debate in parliament on the bills.
Congress MP Ghulam Nabi Azad said, “"I apprised him of the way these two bills were passed unconstitutionally and also urged him to return these bills, so that amendments can be made.” He added, “Before passing these bills, the government should have taken all political parties into confidence.
They should have discussed with farmer organisations and their leaders so that a proper consensus could have reached.” Watch the full video for more.
