Parliament Winter Session 2021:
The winter session of Parliament is starting from today i.e. 29th November with various important topics and bills to be brought to the table. The most known bill of all the bills to be brought to the table in Parliament’s winter session seems to be the bill to repeal three agricultural laws.
Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar will present the Agricultural Laws Repealing Bill 2021 in the Lok Sabha for the first time today. Even though the government has decided to repeal three laws, the Parliament session is expected to be an uproar over farmers' demand for legislation on Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops. The opposition parties have already supported the demand of the farmers and will try to corner the government on this issue on the very first day of the session.
