This year’s Parliament Monsoon Session, scheduled to end on August 13, was focus on several issue and Opposition protests and demands to discuss the issues of Pegasus spyware, farm bills, hike in fuel prices among other things. As the session enters its last week, the possibility of a smooth house functioning seems grim. The Opposition parties on Sunday reiterated that they will not back down and continue to insist on a discussion of the concerned issues.
