The Upper House has been engulfed in heated exchanges between the Opposition and the ruling government all morning.
Earlier today, Congress and YSRCP members entered a war of words on the farm bills after an MP of the ruling Andhra party accused the Congress of “hypocrisy”, prompting them to demand an apology.
Meanwhile, Congress MP TN Prathapan has given Adjournment Motion Notice in Lok Sabha over farmers’ protest across the country against “anti-farmer legislation of the Government”.
Notably, the contentious farmer bills have been passed in the Parliament and are set to be law soon.
