Pegasus snooping, farm laws and other issues continued to mar the proceedings in both the Houses of Parliament. The Rajya Sabha has been adjourned till 2 PM and the Lok Sabha till 12. 30 PM following protest by the opposition parties. In the Rajya Sabha, when the House reassembled after the first adjournment at 12 noon, members from Congress, TMC and others trooped in to the well raising slogans. This forced the adjournment of the House further till 2PM.

Earlier, when the House met for the day, Chairman M Venakaiah Naidu said,   discussion on farmers’ issue, price rise and other issues have been admitted and the House should decide when to take up it. But TMC members supported by the opposition parties including Congress tried to raise the Pegasus snooping issue.  As noisy scenes prevailed, Mr. Naidu adjourned the House till 12 noon.

Today, on the occasion of 79th anniversary of the Quit India Movement, the Rajya Sabha paid homage to those who laid down their lives during India’s Independence struggle. The Upper House also lauded the Indian contingent for bringing laurels to the country in Tokyo Olympics.  The Chairman said the Tokyo Olympics turned out to be best for India, not only in terms of highest ever number of medals won, but also in terms of grit demonstrated.

The Chairman said Neeraj Chopra made the nation proud with his Golden Javelin throw and won  Gold medal.  He also lauded other athletes and Indian men and women hockey teams.

In the Lok Sabha, when the House assembled for the second adjournment amid noisy scenes , the National Commission for Homoeopathy ( Amendment) Bill, 2021 and the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine ( Amendment) Bill, 2021 were introduced amidst opposition by Congress and TMC members.  The Constitution ( One Hundred and Twenty Seventh Amendment) Bill, 2021was also introduced.

Members from Congress, TMC, DMK, Left and others trooped into the well. Amid uproar, the Presiding Officer tried to run the Question Hour but in vain.  Opposition protest forced the adjournment of the House twice.
