The monsoon session of Parliament that starts today, is likely to witness a confrontation between the government and Opposition over raging issues such as fuel price hikes, vaccination strategies, and farm laws.
The ruling government has announced that it is ready to take up any debates. The opposition had prepared a solid offensive to kick start the first day with discussions around the fuel price hike.
Prime Minister, Narendra Modi had apparently proposed to brief all leaders about the current covid-management situation in the country in an exclusive meeting. This offer was declined by all opposition parties as they insisted to take up the subject in the parliamentary session itself.
The session holds extreme importance with the pandemic and the country currently preparing for a potential third wave of infections.
