Parliament Monsoon Session LATEST Updates: On the third day of the Parliament’s Monsoon Session, the Opposition is expected to raise the issues of farm laws, oxygen shortage and Pegasus row, which has been the cause of multiple adjournments since proceedings began on Monday.

Even as the Parliament session will continue to discuss these issues, farmers will be holding protests at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar and will hold ‘Kisan Sansads’ on each working day of the Parliament until the Monsoon Session ends.

No session had taken place in the Parliament on Wednesday owing to Eid-ul-Adha.

The Centre and Opposition parties were at loggerheads after after Union minister Bharati Pravin Pawar said that no deaths due to lack of oxygen were specifically reported by states and Union Territories during the second wave. Opposition parties have also hit out at the Centre since it came to light that the Pegasus spyware was used to snoop upon many political leaders, Supreme Court judges and journalists among others.
