New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today skipped an all-party meeting called by his government, a day before the start of the Winter Session of Parliament which saw the presence of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal. 

“We were expecting that the Prime Minister will attend the meeting and will share something with us. We wanted to ask more about the farm laws as there are some apprehensions that these three farm laws may again come in some other form,” said Mallikarjun Kharge, Congress leader in the Rajya Sabha.

AAP leader Sanjay Singh walked out of the all-party meeting saying that he was not allowed to speak. Mr Singh was aiming to raise the farmers’ demand for a law on Minimum Support Prices.

“They (Government) don’t let any member speak during all-party meeting. I raised the issue of bringing law on MSP guarantee in this session of the Parliament and other issues incl extension of BSF’s jurisdiction etc. They don’t us speak in all-party meet and Parliament,” said Sanjay Singh.

Most opposition parties were looking for a discussion on the Pegasus row, retail inflation and unemployment.

The government bill for repeal of the farm laws has been listed for introduction and passage in the Lok Sabha on the first day of the session on Monday. The bill will be introduced by the Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar in the house during the winter session.
