New Delhi, February 3
Rajya Sabha on Wednesday agreed to allocate 15 hours to discuss the ongoing farmers’ protest over the three contentious farm laws.
Question Hour will be suspended from Thursday and beginning Friday, Zero Hour and Question Hour will be suspended to extend the time allotted for discussion on Motion of Thanks on President’s address.
The extended time of five hours will be used for a discussion on farmers’ issues.
The House was adjourned breifly due to disruptions caused by AAP Members Sanjay Singh, Sushil Gupta and ND Gupta just when Chairman Venkaiah Naidu allowed discussion on Motion of Thanks on President’s address after the Zero Hour.
Naidu named the three Members under Rule 255 of the House which entails them to withdraw from the House. However, they did not relent and continued sloganeering demanding withdrawal of the farm laws.
