Press conference of 6 ministers of Modi:On the uproar against the Agriculture Bill, Rajnath said - what happened in the Rajya Sabha is an attempt to gain political interest;
In the Rajya Sabha on Sunday, about six and a half hours after the uproar over the farmers bill, six big ministers of Modi government held a press conference together. In this, two ministers Rajnath Singh and Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi spoke for about 15 minutes. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said - Whatever has happened in Rajya Sabha today, it was sad. I know that it is the responsibility of the ruling party to run the proceedings of the house, but it also becomes the responsibility of the opposition.
He said that I am also a farmer and promise farmers that the minimum support price (MSP) will not end at any cost. The effort being made only for vested political interests is not good. Apart from Rajnath, Narendra Singh Tomar, Prahlad Joshi, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Piyush Goyal and Thawarchand Gehlot were also present at the press conference. The opposition parties created a ruckus in the Rajya Sabha at around 10 am on Sunday. Modi's ministers held a press conference at 5:30 pm.
What else did Rajnath Singh say?
On Sunday, the opposition had created a ruckus on the Farmers Bill,
in the Rajya Sabha on Sunday, the Central Government passed two bills related to farming by voice vote. These will become law after the President's signature. During the voting on the bill in the house, the opposition created a ruckus. Later, 12 opposition parties moved a no-confidence motion against Rajiv Sabha Deputy Chairman Harivansh Singh.
A motion signed by about 100 people was submitted to the notice office of Parliament. Congress Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel said that the Deputy Speaker of the Rajya Sabha should protect democratic traditions, but instead, his attitude has damaged democratic traditions and process today.
There was so much uproar that Marshall had to call
The bills passed include the Farmers and Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill and the Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Service Bill. During the voting on them, the opposition MPs went to the well and shouted slogans. Trinamool MP Derek O'Brien tried to break the mic of Deputy Chairman Harivansh. He tore the rule book of the house.
Marshals had to be summoned to continue the proceedings of the House. After the adjournment of the house for 10 minutes, the voting process started again and the government passed the bills amidst the uproar. Amid the uproar, the house was adjourned till nine in the morning.
