There is a glimmer of hope that calm would return next week despite the fact that the second week of the present monsoon session of Parliament concluded on an unproductive note due to persistent demonstrations and frequent disruptions.
The price rise and other relevant topics will be discussed in both Houses of Parliament by the administration and the opposition.
On Monday, the Lok Sabha will hold the discussion; the Rajya Sabha will hold it the next day. Both the government and the opposition are eager to communicate their views. Nirmala Sitharaman, the finance minister, is likely to respond in both Houses.
This comes in the midst of opposition leader demonstrations over a number of concerns, including inflation, which led to the suspension of a total of 27 MPs from both Houses of Parliament as a consequence of the uproar demanded a discussion on inflation and other issues.
The opposition erupted during the monsoon session of parliament, asking that topics like the Agnipath military recruiting programme, inflation, and unemployment be discussed.
Adhir Chowdhury, the leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha, apologised to President Droupadi Murmu in writing on Friday, but the storm surrounding his disparaging statements about Murmu has not yet subsided. He wrote, “I am writing to express my regret for having mistakenly used an incorrect word to describe the position you held. I assure you that it was a slip of the tongue. I apologize and request you to accept the same,” he wrote.
