The budget session of Parliament is starting from January 29, before the beginning of the budget session, the opposition has intensified the preparations to surround the government.
On one side, where the farmers have been protesting against the agricultural laws for the last several months, on the other hand, the opposition within the Parliament is once again making full preparations to surround the government over agricultural laws.
Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad has cleared his mind even before the budget session begins. Azad said 16 opposition parties will boycott the President’s address which will held on January 29.
Azad said,” we are going to issue a statement on behalf of 16 parties that we will boycott the President’s speech to be held tomorrow, the main reason is that the agricultural bills have been forcibly passed without opposition in the House.
Apart from Congress, other parties which will boycott the President’s address include NCP, Shiv Sena, TMC, DMK, JKAS, Samajwadi Party, RJD, CPIM, CPI, IUML, RSP, RDP, MDMK, Kerala Congress, AIUDF. Earlier, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had launched a scathing attack on the Central Government over agricultural laws.
He said that the truth is that most of the farmers do not know the agricultural laws very well, if they were given the right information, there would have been a huge protest against it all over the country. The country would have been burning.
Rahul Gandhi is constantly appealing to the central government to withdraw the three agricultural laws. He has been alleging that the policies of the government are only to help 4-5 industrialists.
