As a part of Parliament session technique, the Congress right now wrote to the Lok Sabha Speaker asking for election to the vacant put up of Deputy Speaker and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh suggested the social gathering to hunt a white paper on main points, primarily the India-China standoff alongside the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.

Singh put forth his views to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and mentioned the social gathering should ask the federal government for a white paper on the “LAC issue, Covid-19 status and rising unemployment”. The Congress plans to lift these points vociferously within the session beginning September 14.

Congress chief in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury wrote to Speaker Om Birla demanding election for the put up of Deputy Speaker. “The Rajya Sabha is on the verge of electing Deputy Chairman. It is an opportune moment to elect the Deputy Speaker of the lower house. I would urge upon you that during monsoon season itself, the Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker must be elected,” he wrote.

Citing previous conference of the Deputy Speaker’s put up going to the Opposition, the Congress chief mentioned, “According to constitutional mandate, the post should be filled either by election or consensus as early as possible after new Lok Sabha is constituted.”

Adir mentioned a yr had elapsed for the reason that 17th Lok Sabha was constituted, however there was no Deputy Speaker. The BJP has 303 MPs within the Lok Sabha and the Congress has 51.

Lockdown assault on poor: Rahul

New Delhi, September 9

Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday mentioned the sudden Covid-19 lockdown in March proved a loss of life sentence for the unorganised sector and was the third assault on the poor after demonetisation and the “flawed” GST.

In a video posted on Twitter, Gandhi mentioned the lockdown had severely hit the poor and day by day wagers in small and medium companies. He mentioned the lockdown was not an assault on Covid, it was an assault on the poor, on youth’s future, on labourers and farmers. — TNS
