Constantly disrupted, monsoon session of Parliament ends four days early


NEW DELHI: The monsoon session of Parliament ended on Monday, four days ahead of schedule. Both Houses witnessed continued disruptions over issues like price rise, suspension of 27 MPs and the Enforcement Directorate’s action against some of the opposition leaders over the last three weeks.
Government sources said members of various parties were in favour of the early conclusion of the session as they wanted to visit their constituencies on Muharram and Raksha Bandhan.
The Rajya Sabha bid farewell to Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu, whose tenure ends on August 10.

Rajya Sabha passed five bills, lost 47 hours to disruptions
The monsoon session which ended on Monday was to conclude on August 12. It witnessed the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha passing seven and five bills respectively. While the Lower House saw a total of 16 sittings that lasted 44 hours and 29 minutes, the Upper House met for 38 hours with as many as 47 hours lost due to disruptions, something which outgoing Chairman Venkaiah Naidu lamented.
During the session, both Houses witnessed an acrimonious debate on price rise.
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s ‘Rashtrapatni’ remark on President Droupadi Murmu led to adjournments in Lok Sabha as a war of words broke out between opposition and treasury benches. The issue reached a flash-point when Union minister Smriti Irani sought an apology from Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.
During the session, the Lower House passed seven legislations, including Indian Antarctic Bill, Family Courts (Amendment) Bill, National Anti-Doping Bill, Wild Life Protection (Amendment) Bill, and Central Universities (Amendment) Bill, and Energy Conservation (Amendment) Bill.
Referring to the Question Hour, Speaker Om Birla said oral answers were given to 46 starred questions during the session. Members raised 318 matters of public interest before the House under Rule 377. During Zero Hour, members raised 98 matters on key issues.

Empower appellate authority for public grievances to penalise officers: Parliament panel
A parliamentary standing committee on Monday recommended that the Centre devise a mechanism to empower the appellate authority for public grievances to reward or impose penalties on its officers based on an assessment of their performance in dealing with such grievances. The department-related parliamentary standing committee on personnel, public grievances and pensions, in its report tabled in Parliament on the action taken on its December 2021 recommendations for strengthening the government’s grievance redressal mechanism, asked the department of administrative reforms and public grievances to play the role of facilitator to states and help them establish a robust system of grievance redressal.
