NDA vs INDIA clash likely in Parliament today; NEET row, Agnipath scheme in focus – N.F Times


New Delhi: The second week of the first session of the 18th Lok Sabha is expected to see a fiery start, with the Opposition MPs gearing up to attack the NDA government over key issues such as the irregularities in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and the Agnipath scheme, among others. In addition to the paper leak row and inflation, the opposition parties are also likely to raise issues regarding unemployment in India.

The Lok Sabha session on Friday was adjourned till Monday, July 1, amid an uproar in the lower house over the discussion on the conduct of the NEET medical entrance exam and other central competitive exams. The ruckus over the NEET issue broke out after INDIA bloc members sought the acceptance of an adjournment motion to suspend all business and discuss the paper leak issue on priority.

In the midst of the uproar, Speaker Om Birla adjourned the House first until 12 noon and then until July 1.

It is expected that the INDIA bloc leaders would attack NDA over other issues such as the Agnipath scheme, inflation and unemployment when the House reconvenes today. The opposition also demands a debate under Rule 267 of the Parliament on the NEET issue.
