New Delhi,July18:Before the start of Day 2 of the Parliament monsoon session, the Congress moved an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over the plight of farmers across the country. The Opposition is expected to attack the Narendra Modi-led government on several key issues including farmer’s protests, lynching incidents, Jammu-Kashmir unrest and the border standoff with China.
Both the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned on the first day of the monsoon session, which coincided with the Presidential polls, just after the obituary references were read and the oath was administered to the new ministers. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who arrived at the Parliament to cast his vote in the Presidential polls, hoped that all parties would contribute constructively during the House debates in this session.
