Monsoon session: Slogans As PM Modi Speaks In Parliament, Government Hits Back; IT minister Ashwini Vaishnaw on Pegasus report

INDIA Team Latestly|

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 19 could not introduce his new ministers to the house amid uproar by the opposition, as the monsoon session of parliament took off on a bitter note. Both houses were subsequently adjourned. PM Modi, in his traditional remarks before the start of the session, urged the opposition to ask tough questions but to allow the government to answer them in the House. Introducing the newly inducted ministers to the house, PM Modi had to abandon the exercise midway amid slogan shouting against price rise and farmer protests by the opposition. Criticising the opposition move, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said such a thing was happening for the first time in his 24 years of parliamentary career. Meanwhile, IT Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has slammed the release of "over-the-top" media reports about the government's use of Pegasus to spy on opposition leaders, journalists and others, including its own ministers and a sitting judge of the Supreme Court. He said it "can't be a coincidence" that they were published a day before the opening of Parliament's monsoon session. Watch the video to know more.
