Congressional Deputy Manish Tewari urges the government to urgently convene the winter session of Parliament | India News


NEW DELHI: Former Union Minister and Congressional Deputy Manish Tewari on Wednesday urged the Central Government to convene the winter session of Parliament as soon as possible to resolve farmers’ issues and deliberate on issues of Chinese incursion and increased of Covid-19 cases in the country.
On Twitter, Manish Tewari said: “Farmers have besieged Delhi, the economy is officially in recession, the Chinese continue to encroach over 1000 square kilometers of our land, COVID cases are at 95 lakhs with 1.38 lakhs dead in 8 months. The government needs TO CALL THE WINTER SESSION OF PARLIAMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE WITHOUT DELAY. ”

Government sources indicated that the decision not to hold the winter session is currently being discussed.
Also being considered is whether to host the winter session and budget session or just hold the budget session directly next year, the sources added.
Farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Western Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand have been campaigning against the recently passed farm laws on the borders of the national capital with the “Dilli Chalo” protest march.
In light of this, the Union Minister of Agriculture, Narendra Singh Tomar, held a meeting with representatives of FarmerTuesday organizations. However, the talks were inconclusive.
The congressional leader, who is also a member of the Parliament’s Defense Committee, has raised the issue of Chinese invasion of Indian lands up to 1000 kilometers.
The argument for not holding the winter session this year has been given by an increase in the number of cases. Sources say the next session of Parliament, the budget session, is likely to be convened at the end of January 2021.
