Monsoon Session 2021: Amid continuous uproar by the opposition in Parliament, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar on Friday said that the government was ready to speak on every issue raised by the opposition including farm laws.
"Opposition frequently disrupts the Parliament proceedings on several issues but the Government and PM Narendra Modi have always made it clear that it is ready to hold discussions over important issues raised by the opposition, including the farm laws," he said.
Emphasising that Opposition must be present in the Parliament for discussions to happen, Narendra Singh Tomar said that "If they (Opposition) give importance to a certain issue, they should come for the discussions. Government is ready for discussions anytime."
Earlier today, several MPs cutting across opposition parties like Congress, Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) were seen protesting inside the Parliament premises near the Mahatma Gandhi statue, in favour of farmers protesting against three controversial farm laws passed by the Centre last year.
Meanwhile, MPs also talked about issues like COVID-19 mismanagement by the Centre, Pegasus snoop gate, and fuel prices hike.
The Monsoon session 2021 of Parliament, which started on July 19, has seen numerous adjournment motions being put by various opposition parties on a range of issues both in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. The Monsoon session will conclude on August 13.
