New Delhi, August 12: Opposition leaders on Thursday marched towards Vijay Chowk from Parliament in the national capital demanding to repeal the three farm laws.
The Opposition MPs were seen carrying placards saying ‘repeal black farm laws’.
Centre doesn’t want to run the Parliament proceedings properly. Govt is passing laws without discussions. There should be a discussion on Covid-19 vaccination, current economic situation, unemployment, farm laws but govt is running away, said Congress MP Shashi Tharoor.
The Parliament session is over. As far as 60 per cent of the country is concerned there has been no Parliament session. The voice of 60% per cent of the country has been crushed and humiliated. This is murder of democracy, said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
Shiv Sena also joined the protest. The opposition didn’t get a chance to present their views in Parliament. Yesterday’s incident against women MPs was against democracy. It felt like we were standing at the Pakistan border, said Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut.
However, the BJP lashed out at the Opposition for protesting on road. It’s unfortunate how Congress & other Opposition parties are protesting on road. Democracy has been shamed. I would say that not just VP Venkaiah Naidu cried but democracy also cried. Opposition ensured washout of the whole session, & this is height of anarchy, said party spokesperson Sambit Patra.
