Indian PM Modi in meetings after Parliament repeals farm laws

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a meeting with top Ministers in Parliament on the third day of the winter session, to discuss strategy for the ongoing winter session.

The meeting was attended by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, Road Transport, and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.

The meeting comes at a time when opposition leaders are protesting demanding revocation of suspension of 12 Opposition MPs of Rajya Sabha.

The winter session of the Parliament commenced on 29 November. On the first day of the session, both the Houses of Parliament passed the Farm Laws Repeal Bill 2021.

However, the Opposition parties created a ruckus alleging that the government passed the Bill without having a discussion on the floor.
The second day of the session also remained a jerk as the Opposition leaders held protests and walkouts over the suspension of 12 Rajya Sabha MPs.

The winter session is likely to conclude on December 23.
