Farmers’ Protest: Congress Urges Speaker To Call Special Parliament Session

Leader of Opposition for Congress in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury Thursday urged House Speaker Om Birla to convene a short Winter Session of the Parliament to address issues such as the farmers protest, status of Covid 19 vaccine, among others. In a letter addressed to the Lok Sabha Speaker, Chowdhury said there are a number of important issues the country is facing in current times that “need a thorough and transparent debate”. “The most notable among them are the farmers agitation, status/preparation of Covid-19 vaccine, the economic slowdown, unemployment scenario, the continuous stand-off on Indo-China border, ‘unabated ceasefire violation on Indo-Pak border,” he said. Chowdhury’s letter comes even as Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, along with other ministers from the Modi Cabinet, is set to meet farmer leaders for a second round of talks over the contentious farm laws. On the ongoing farmers’ protest, Chowdhury said the food givers of our country should be given due honour and dignity. “They have been languishing on the road under the sky and also enduring chill weather of Delhi much to the discomfort of the farmers. “I do propose the govt to resolve the farmer’s issues as fast as possible and do not persuade ‘Wear them Out’ policy against the farmers,” he tweeted.
