New Delhi: The budget session starting today is likely to be tumultuous, as Assembly elections in five states will leave no stone unturned for the opposition to surround the government on any issue. On the first day of the budget session, the President will address a joint sitting of both the Houses of Parliament and an economic review will be presented today. Tomorrow, February 1, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present the budget recommendations for the year 2022-23.
During the budget session, Pegasus will ask the government questions on the spy issue, but will also surround the government on the issue of Chinese infiltration and farmers. It is to be noted that the news about Pegasus has been published in the American newspaper ‘New York Times’, in which it is said that along with a defense deal with Israel,
India had also taken Pegasus spyware from the Israeli company NSO. Indian politics has heated up since the newspaper’s revelation. Meanwhile, the government has not given any explanation on this news so there are signs of commotion in the budget meeting.
On the other hand, news of Chinese incursions are being published in daily newspapers and the opposition is demanding response from the government. Therefore, there is a possibility of commotion in the budget meeting on this issue as well. The government withdrew three agricultural laws, after which farmers who had been protesting for a year returned to their homes. While withdrawing the controversial bill, the government had promised to form a committee, but that committee has not been formed yet, so farmers could also be a headache for the government again.
