Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has said, the Opposition is misleading the farmers in the country by propagating blatant lies about the Farm Bills. Speaking in Lok Sabha today, the Minister reiterated that the Bills do not affect the Minimum Support Price (MSP) or process of government procurement in any way. Mr Tomar asserted that the announcement of increase in MSP of six Rabi Crops even before the sowing season shows the commitment of the current Government towards Minimum Support Price and procurement of Agri products. He said, the Bill paves the way for enhanced usage of modern techniques in farming.

Opposition parties including the Congress, TMC, DMK, CPM, Samajwadi Party, BSP and the NCP among others staged protests against the three Farm Bills in Lok Sabha while the Minister was speaking. The MPs walked into the well of the house and raised slogans and placards against the Bill. Opposition parties walked out from the lower house immediately after the statement of the Agriculture Minister. Congress member Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury demanded that the Government should include the provision of MSP in the Farm Bill and said, the entire Opposition has decided to boycott the session until the Government agrees to their demands.

Earlier, Lok Sabha was adjourned for an hour after MPs led by the Congress raised slogans and banners to protest against the farm Bills. As soon as the House met for the day, Congress MP Ravneet Singh Bittu raised the issue of action by Delhi police on the protesting MPs in the National Capital.

The Minister said, he has never seen a Congress MP dancing on Rajya Sabha table and tear the papers. He also asserted that the Government had a clear majority in the Rajya Sabha for the passing of the Farm Bills. The assertion came after a number of Opposition parties, led by the Congress, staged a walkout from Rajya Sabha demanding that the suspension of eight members be revoked.

The Rajya Sabha today passed seven key Bills including the crucial Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill. In one of its most productive days, the House passed the bills after a number of Opposition parties staged a walkout and decided to boycott proceedings of the House till the suspension of eight members is revoked. The government, however, insisted that the suspended members first apologise and then the government would consider the request for revoking their suspension. The parties that boycotted the proceedings of the House included the Congress, CPI-M, CPI, TMC, NCP, SP, Shiv Sena, RJD, DMK, TRS and AAP. The Bills passed today are 'The Indian Institutes of Information Technology Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2020', 'The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020', 'The Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill, 2020', 'The Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2020', 'The National Forensic Sciences University Bill, 2020, 'The Rashtriya Raksha University Bill, 2020' and 'The Taxation and Other Laws (Relaxation and Amendment of Certain Provisions) Bill, 2020'. When the bills were passed, only a few members were present in the house which included those from the ruling BJP and its ally JD-U and those of parties like AIADMK, BJD, YSR-Congress and TDP, and participated in the debates on the Bills.

The Upper House took up the government’s legislative business after nearly an hour of discussion over the conduct of opposition MPs during the passage of two agriculture reform Bills on Sunday, with Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu saying the suspension could be revoked if the members expressed regret over their action.

First, it passed a Bill to declare five newly-established Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IIITs) as institutions of national importance. The crucial Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, which removes cereals, pulses, oilseeds, edible oils, onion and potatoes from the list of essential commodities and removes stockholding limits on them, was passed next. This Bill is part of the agriculture reforms Bills that the government is pushing to raise farm incomes. The Bills passed on Sunday gave farmers the freedom to sell produce anywhere in the country and enter into forward contracts with companies. Rajya Sabha also passed amendments to the Bank Regulation Act to bring cooperative banks under the supervision of the RBI in a bid to protect the interest of depositors. Thereafter the Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2020, which removes the penalty for certain offences, was passed.

The National Forensic Sciences University Bill, 2020 and the Rashtriya Raksha University Bill were also passed in quick succession. Thereafter, the Taxation and Other Laws (Relaxation and Amendment of Certain Provisions) Bill, 2020 to relax time limit on compliance with tax laws, GST payment and filing in view of the coronavirus pandemic. The Essential Commodities (Amendment) Bill, 2020 as well as the Taxation and Other Laws (Relaxation and Amendment of Certain Provisions) Bill, 2020 replace emergency ordinances. The sitting of  Rajya Sabha was extended by just over an hour beyond the scheduled time to allow the passage of the Bills. All the seven Bills have already been passed by Lok Sabha.

Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu earlier lauded Deputy Chairman Harivansh for showing restraint when Opposition members were agitating in the House and disapproved of the conduct of the protesting leaders. He also appealed to the Opposition members to reconsider their decision of boycotting Rajya Sabha proceedings and asked them to participate in the discussions instead. Democracy means debate, discussion and decision, not disruption, he said, adding that the Chair wants the House to run with the full participation of members. The Chairman also said, the members should not try to blame the Chair and drag it into a controversy over what has happened in the House on Sunday and this was not the first time that members have been suspended. Mr. Naidu said, he had allowed the motion moved by the Government for suspension of some members over their unruly behaviour as he was convinced about it.

Lauding the Deputy Chairman Harivansh for the manner in which he handled the situation, Mr. Naidu said Harivansh announced for a division of vote at least 13 times in the House and called upon the protesting Opposition members to go to their seats and move their resolutions, but they did not return to their seats. He said the Deputy Chairman acted with utmost restraint and handled the situation in a very deft manner. Mr. Naidu lamented that the chair has been dragged into the controversy and said members should not put the blame on the Chair. He also lamented that the suspended members in an interview justified their action and showed no remorse. He said, this is not the first time that members have been suspended.

Earlier, Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad, demanded that new Bills be brought to ensure that the Centre and States and private players buy food grains from farmers above the Minimum Support Price. He said they would boycott the proceedings till the suspension of members is revoked and also demanded that the Government bring another bill to ensure that no private player should buy food grains from farmers below the MSP fixed by the Government. Mr. Azad demanded that the Government should also ensure that the MSP is fixed as per the formula under Swaminathan Committee. He also demanded that the suspension of colleagues who have been suspended for the rest of the Session, be revoked. Till the government does these three things, they will boycott the session, Mr Azad said, while walking out of the house.

Eight members of Rajya Sabha were suspended on Monday over their unruly behaviour during the passage of the two key farm related Bills on Sunday. Mr Azad also said members should get more time to speak and time constraint has become a major issue of discontent among opposition parties. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said, the Government is not hell-bent upon keeping the suspended MPs out of the House. He said, if they express regret, the Government will look into it. Leader of the House Thaawarchand Gehlot said the suspended members tried to portray that it is the mistake of the Chair and not the opposition. He said this is not proper.

Former Prime Minister and JD-S leader H D Deve Gowda said, the Government and Opposition should sit together to run the House. Prof. Ram Gopal Yadav of the Samajwadi Party said, a mistake has taken place by opposition members, but elders should be large hearted. He said that he would apologise on their behalf.

The new legislations are: Occupational Safety, Health And Working Conditions Code, 2020, the Industrial Relations Code, 2020, and the Code On Social Security, 2020.

Replying to the debate, Union Labour Minister Santosh Gangwar said, the labour reforms will prove to be a milestone for the welfare of workers. He said, these labour codes will play a significant role in protecting the interests of the labourers. Mr Gangwar said, the Government has come out with the changes in the legislation after extensive consultations with State governments and other stakeholders. He said, about three-fourth of the recommendations of the standing committee which scrutinised the codes have been incorporated in the Bills by the Government.

Several opposition parties, including the Congress and the TMC, today boycotted Lok Sabha proceedings in solidarity with the eight Rajya Sabha members who were suspended for unruly behaviour. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury of Congress said all opposition parties are boycotting Parliament in solidarity with Rajya Sabha members who were suspended on Monday. Opposition parties, including Congress, TMC, BSP and TRS, walked out of Lok Sabha. Mr. Chowdhury however did not specify for how long the boycott would continue. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla warned that members should not mention about the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha. He said, all references made by members would be removed from the records. The Opposition boycott came after eight opposition MPs in Rajya Sabha were suspended on Monday for the remainder of the Monsoon session for "unruly behaviour" during the passage of two Farm Bills, prompting the suspended leaders to go on an indefinite sit-in inside Parliament complex.

Earlier, Lok Sabha had to be adjourned for an hour after a protest by Opposition members who claimed that the Government has done too little for the welfare of the farmers. Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said that Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar's announcement on increasing the Minimum Support Price of six Rabi crops was too little for farmers who have been agitating mainly in Punjab and Haryana against two Farm Bills passed by Parliament. T R Baalu of DMK and Kalyan Banerjee of TMC supported Mr. Chowdhury. When Opposition members shouted slogans and came near the Well of the House, Speaker Om Birla adjourned the house for an hour, after about 15 minutes of business. Mr Birla said the Coronavirus pandemic is on and every member has to take precautions. He then adjourned the House for an hour.

Farmer groups in Punjab, Haryana and some other States are protesting against the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill, 2020, and The Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Bill, 2020. On Monday, Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar announced an increase in the MSP for six rabi crops for 2020-21 crop year (July-June) and 2021-22 marketing season. The MSP for wheat, the biggest crop of rabi season, has been hiked by 50 rupees to 1,975 rupees per quintal, the MSP for Gram has been increased by 225 rupees to 5,100 rupees per quintal, for barley by 75 rupees to 1,600 rupees per quintal.

As soon as the House assembled at 3 PM, D M Kathir Anand of DMK alleged that two persons, who claimed to be from the IB, barged into his room at Old Tamil Nadu House in Delhi and sought to know from him about issues to be raised by the party in Parliament. Anand claimed that the two persons also wanted to know what would be the party's strategy and about some local issues of Tamil Nadu. "They tried to interrogate me," he claimed, amidst protests by DMK leader Baalu and others. At this, Lok Sabha Speaker said the two persons could be frauds. Ravneet Singh Bittu of Congress also claimed that he and three other MPs from Punjab were brutally assaulted by Delhi police personnel outside Parliament on Monday evening when they were trying to take out a candle light march to Rashtrapati Bhavan against the two Farm Bills.
