New Delhi: Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge claimed on Monday that there has been no meaningful debate in the House since the monsoon session began on July 18 and that five days of parliament have been squandered.
“The government has not approached the Opposition for talks.” It is a clear indication that the government doesn’t like to discuss it in the House. “The 5 days of the Monsoon Session of Parliament have passed without any meaningful discussion,” Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said.
Kharge believes that the lack of discussion in parliament is a loss for the country because no talks take place on important issues in the House.
It is shocking to those who believe in democracy, as it is the responsibility of the government to run the House smoothly. He said the government has not called a single meeting to solve any issue till date.
He also suggested the adoption of a mutual approach by both the Houses and said, “Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha should take a decision together and start the discussion after finding a solution, but the government is adamant that there will be no discussion under 267.”
Earlier on Friday, the proceedings in the Rajya Sabha were adjourned till 2:30 pm amid a ruckus by Opposition members over issues of inflation, price rise and GST hike on daily essentials, while the Lok Sabha was adjourned till 2 pm.
The Session of the Upper House was adjourned after the Question Hour.
Continued adjournments have taken place in both Houses since the beginning of the session.
