New Delhi, August 11: Since the start of the Monsoon session on July 19, parliamentary proceedings have been continuously witnessing disruptions due to protests by the Opposition. The Lok Sabha has been adjourned sine die today two days ahead of its schedule for closure on August 13.

The House functioned for only 74 hrs and 46 minutes. The total productivity was 22 percent. A total of 20 Bills were passed, including the OBC Bill which was passed with the unanimous consent of all parties. “{I thank the PM and the leaders of all parties who contributed to the House,” said Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

But there was continuous obstruction this time. The impasse could not be resolved leading to premature adjournment of the session.

The last two years were more productive, as far as Business in the House is concerned. The proceedings had continued till late in the night and MPs had made active contributions even during COVID, Birla said. “I am hurt by the fact that the proceedings of the House did not take place as per expectations in this Session. I always make an effort to see that maximum Business takes place in the House and discussions are held over issues related to the public,” he added.

On the other hand, the Leader of Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury blamed the government for the sudden decision to adjourn the Lower House sine die.  

“I saw PM Modi for the first time today. When everything is over, he shows up. Centre passed bills without discussion, except for discussion on OBC Bill. Bills were passed within minutes, another record by the government. This government doesn’t broadcast the proceedings when Opposition speaks, “complained Chowdhury.
