He also shared a list of farmers who died in the agitation in the last one year.

    Rajya Sabha sees repeated adjournments as Opposition protests suspension of 12 MPs

    Rajya Sabha witnessed repeated adjournments of proceedings on Monday as the Opposition, including the Congress, Left parties and the TMC, persistently protested demanding revocation of the suspension of 12 members.

    Home Minister Amit Shah made a statement on the Nagaland killings amid the din before the House was finally adjourned for the day. His statement was identical to the one he had made in the Lok Sabha earlier in the day.

    Previously the House saw four adjournments of varied durations. As soon the House reassembled at 4 pm after the fourth adjournment of the day, Deputy Chairman Harivansh called Shah to make his statement.

    As the minister was making his statement, Opposition members kept raising slogans against the government. After Shah finished his statement, Harivansh asked the protesting members to go back to their seats from the well of the House to seek any clarification for the minister.

    He adjourned the House for the day as the protesting members refused to relent. Earlier, after the House assembled at 3 pm following the third adjournment, Sasmit Patra, who was in the Chair, called for a short-term discussion on the situation in the country due to inflation, including the rise in prices of petroleum products.

    Patra called Leader of Opposition Mallikarjun Kharge to speak on the matter. The septuagenarian leader, however, asked the Chair to first revoke the suspension of the 12 MPs and allow them to participate in the discussion.

    Kharge said, "In a democracy, it is a crime to run the House and start a discussion after suspending 12 members. "Patra said that the proposal for the short-term discussion was brought by the Opposition members only, but now they don't want to discuss it. "This topic is decided by them. The Opposition wanted to discuss this and the government has agreed for this discussion," said Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman. "They are talking about democracy and we have agreed for it.
    Is it not democracy and spirit of the House?" "We are not running away from debate. We want to debate and discuss price hikes but you are seeing this.
    This is the hypocrisy of the Opposition," Sitharaman said pointing towards the MPs who trooped in the well of the House with placards and were raising slogans.

    The Congress members are in the House. "The Leader of the Opposition "on one hand claims to bring the House in order and on other hand encourages its own MPs to be in the well," Goyal said while holding the state governments led by Opposition parties responsible for the price rise, particularly of petroleum.

    The Union government has not only reduced excise duty on petroleum products, the BJP-ruled states have also reduced VAT on petrol and diesel, he said. "They (non-NDA parties) are responsible for this situation, particularly on petroleum prices and to cover up they are in action," Goyal said, adding the whole nation is watching.

    Following this, Patra adjourned the House session. Earlier in the day, following a round of adjournment, when the House gathered in the afternoon, Harivansh called for laying on the table the statement of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

    The deputy chairman then sought initiation of the short-duration discussion on the 'situation arising out of price rise in the country including the rise in the prices of petroleum products'.

    Kharge stated that he was ready for the discussion but requested that the suspended MPs be first called in the House.
    "I request you to please call them inside (the House) for once," he said, noting the 12 MPs have been out of the House for five days.

    To this, the Chair said the Leader of Opposition and Leader of the House should sit together to find a solution to this. Kharge said the suspended MPs also want to discuss the price rise issue. However, the deputy chairman called out his name to initiate the discussion.

    When Kharge continued with his plea to call the suspended MPs to the House, Harivansh called the name of Anand Sharma then Fauzia Khan and subsequently Manoj Jha to participate in the debate. However, no member spoke a word on the issue of price rise.

    Opposition members started shouting and many members trooped into the well following which the deputy chairman asked them to go back to their seats.
    As the protest continued, he adjourned the House for an hour till 3 PM. Twelve Opposition MPs were suspended from Rajya Sabha last Monday for the entire Winter Session of Parliament for their "unruly" conduct in the previous session in August.
