New Delhi: Parliament of India on Monday passed the Farm Laws Repeal Bill without any discussion even as the opposition was vociferously demanding talks regarding it.
India’s Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar introduced and tabled the Bill for consideration and passing, reports said.
However, the opposition MPs of TMC and DMK came to the well of the House seeking a discussion while the Congress MPs, who were initially there, went back to their seats to let their leader Adhir Ranjan Choudhary raise the demand.
Ahead of the commencement of the Winter Session, the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi said the government of India was ready to discuss and reply to queries about all issues, reports said.
“The government is ready to debate any issue and answer any question. We should debate in Parliament and maintain the decorum of the proceedings,” Modi said.
Many opposition parties as well as some of those friendly to the Bharatiya Janata Party, have demanded a statutory backing to the Minimum Support Price (MSP) of crops for farmers at an all-party meeting Sunday.
Joining the Congress in seeking legal guarantees on the MSP were Trinamool Congress, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, YSR Congress Party, Biju Janata Dal, Telangana Rashtra Samithi, Aam Admi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, and the Left parties.
