Staff Reporter

Both the Houses of Parliament today adjourned sine die a day ahead of its schedule. The Winter Session of the Parliament had commenced on 29th of the last month and it was scheduled to conclude tomorrow.

During the Session both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha witnessed continuous disruptions on farmer issues, Lakhimpur Kheri incident, suspension of 12 MPs of Upper House and other issues due to protest of opposition.

In the Lok Sabha when the House met this morning, Speaker Om Birla made a valedictory remark saying the House registered 82 percent productivity during the session and passed nine Bills. He said that due to disruptions around 19 hours of the House were wasted during the Session.

In his valedictory remarks in the Rajya Sabha, Chairman Venkaiah Naidu expressed unhappiness over the functioning of House during session and urged Members to collectively reflect and individually introspect on the way the session has gone by. He said the House functioned much below its potential.

The Lok Sabha has registered 82 percent productivity while the Rajya Sabha 47 percent in the Winter Session of the Parliament. Briefing media about the session, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said, nine Bills were passed by the Lok Sabha and 11 Bills by the Rajya Sabha.

They include the Farm Laws Repeal Bill, 2021, the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021, the Appropriation Bill (No. 5), 2021 and the High Court and Supreme Court Judges (Salaries and Conditions of Service) Amendment Bill, 2021. He said,13 Bills were introduced during the session. Mr. Joshi criticized the opposition for disruptions.

Opposition blames Govt for the ‘non-productive’ Winter Session


The Opposition blamed the government for the Winter Session of Parliament being unproductive. The leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge and the leader of the Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said the Opposition had been ready to iron out the differences, but the BJP and the government were not ready to hold discussions with the Opposition.

Kharge charged the the Winter Session started with 12 opposition MPs to manipulate the majority in the Upper House. The UPA has 68 members in Rajya Sabha, Opposition parties have 50 and two independent MPs were backing the Opposition. Thus, the Opposition has the support of 120 MPs against NDA’s 118. So they thought that if there is a voting on the Bills, the Government will be in minority. That is why they suspended 12 MPs without even naming them. They were eager to prove majority at any cost,” Kharge claimed.

He said the Opposition was hoping that there will be discussions on serious issues such as distress of farmers, unemployment, inflation and Chinese encroachments. We had given many notices for this. “But on the first day of the session, they suspended 12 MPs who are articulate and active. They flouted the rules and the Constitution to suspend the MPs. The BJP was not ready to solve the stand-off. They always said suspended MPs must express regrets. I was ready to express regret on behalf of the 12 MPs, but the BJP was not ready to accept this proposal. The BJP wanted to pass all the Bills without any discussion,” he added.
