Derek: Oppn MP broke mic, BJP tried to break the back of Parliament

Sep 20, 2020 18:55 IST

TMC MP Derek O'Brien has hit out at the Centre for pushing through the farming bills in a hurry amid strong protests by the Opposition. He tweeted that an Opposition MP did break a microphone in the Rajya Sabha but BJP tried to break the back of the Parliament by not allowing a division vote on the bills. He also posted a video from outside the Parliament accusing the govt of breaking every rule of the Parliament. 'It was a historic day, in the worst sense of the word. They cut RSTV feed so the country couldn't see,' Derek alleged in the video. He also denied reports of him having torn the rulebook during the ruckus that ensued in Rajya Sabha during discussion on the bills. 2 farm bills tabled by the Centre were passed in the Upper House on Sunday by a voice vote.
