New Delhi: On the third day of the Parliament Monsoon session, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi called upon opposition parties to engage in structured and constructive discussions to ensure the smooth functioning of the House.
Expressing his bewilderment, the Union Minister questioned the opposition’s approach, citing their disruptive behaviour in Parliament over the Manipur issue despite the Central government’s agreement to hold discussions on the matter.
“We request the opposition to take part in structured and constructive discussions in the Parliament. Why are they running away from discussions? Nobody is able to understand their strategy,” he said.
Meanwhile, opposition parties’ newly constructed alliance-I.N.D.I.A-staged a protest in Parliament premises today. On the other hand, the Central government has been asserting since the beginning of the Monsoon session that they are ready for a discussion on Manipur inside Parliament.
Furthermore, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) organised a protest in front of the Gandhi statue at the Parliament premises, highlighting concerns about atrocities against women in Rajasthan, West Bengal, and other states.
Meanwhile, both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been adjourned until 12 noon.
