On Thursday, July 21, the most senior ministers attended a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi to discuss the government’s strategy regarding Parliament. Attendees in the conference include Rajnath Singh, Anurag Thakur, and Kiren Rijiju, who are all ministers in the Union government. This outcome comes as a result of opposition parties’ continued efforts to force the postponement of Wednesday’s meeting of the two Houses of Parliament due to their demands surrounding the government’s implementation of GST on some everyday items and price rises.
On the other hand, the floor leaders of all opposition parties in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha got together on Thursday in the office of Mallikarjun Kharge, who serves as the Leader of the Opposition for the Rajya Sabha. In addition to representatives from the Congress party, leaders from the following opposition parties were present at the meeting: the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), the Communist Party of India (Marxist), the Communist Party of India, the Jammu and Kashmir National Conference (JKNC), the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK), the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), and A total of two adjournments took place during the third day of the monsoon session of Parliament before Lok Sabha was finally adjourned for the day.

In order to put pressure on the government to meet their requests, opposition parties held a demonstration in front of Parliament close to a statue of Mahatma Gandhi. During the protest in front of the statue of Mahatma Gandhi, leaders of the opposition stated that the recently revised Goods and Services Tax (GST) rates that the government imposed on a variety of commonplace goods were creating financial difficulties for the average person. Opposition party leaders from the Congress, NCP, DMK, and Left have called for a reversal of the government’s decision to raise the rates of the products subject to the Goods and Services Tax (GST), including curd, bread, and paneer. The event was attended by a number of prominent members of the Congress, including Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury. Protests were staged by opposing parties when the Lok Sabha was in session to hear questions from the public. The Monsoon Session of Parliament began on July 18 and will last until August 12 at the earliest. There will be 18 separate sittings during the session.
