The monsoon session, which began on July 19, started with chaos and protest of the opposition parties over Farm laws and the Pegasus software. On Friday, proceedings in both houses were disrupted yet again with the issue of Farm Law.
Moreover, the opposition parties demand independent judicial investigation over the Pegasus software issue as it has attacked the fundamental rights of Indian citizens.
Last week Prime Minister Narendra Modi attacked Congress by accusing it of not allowing Parliament to function properly. Moreover, PM Narendra Modi asked BJP MPs to expose Congress before the party and the media.
