Winter Session Day 1: Farm laws repeal top agenda, Oppn wants legal backing for MSP

The government has listed a bill to repeal the three contentious farm laws on the first day of the Winter Session itself

The Winter Session of Parliament is set to begin on a stormy note on Monday, with the government listing a bill to repeal the three contentious farm laws on the first day itself. The Opposition plans to push for a law on minimum support price on agriculture produce.

The Farm Laws Repeal Bill is slated to be introduced in Lok Sabha on Monday.

Thousands of farmers have been protesting for the past one year against the three legislations and demanding they be repealed.

Several farmer unions have pressed for a law on minimum support price (MSP).

Various opposition parties on Sunday raised the issue of legal backing for MSP at an all-party meet called by the government ahead of the session.

The opposition also raised the issue of compensation for family members of farmers who had died during the year-long protests against the laws.

The Congress has demanded a condolence resolution for the farmers who died during the protests.

At the meeting, opposition leaders also demanded discussion on the Pegasus snooping row, fuel prices and unemployment in the session.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi was not present at the all-party meeting convened by the government, Defence Minister and Deputy Leader of Lok Sabha Rajnath Singh sought cooperation from all parties for productive and smooth functioning of the House.

The government is ready for discussions on all the issues permitted by the Lok Sabha speaker and the Rajya Sabha chairman, he said.

Talking to reporters, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge said leaders wanted to ask more from the prime minister about the farm laws as there were some apprehensions that these legislations might again come in some other form.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi said there is no tradition of the prime minister attending the all-party meet.
