Standing by troopers

Hope all MPs will ship out a message in a single voice that the nation stands behind our troopers posted on the border.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman sought Parliament’s nod for extra spending on border roads, as a part of the general supplementary grants for the continuing fiscal, ending March 31, 2021.

In the Union Budget in February, a sum of Rs 3,050 crore was earmarked for roads in border areas. The addition of Rs 1,200 crore makes it a 39 per cent bounce over the unique allocation. — TNS


Legislative overreach

This is legislative overreach and a direct assault on the federal construction. — Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Congress

It is past the legislative competence of this House to enact any regulation on agriculture, which is a site of state governments. — Shashi Tharoor, Congress
