Loksabha and Rajyasabha secretariats announced on 2 September, Wednesday that there will be no question hour incoming monsoon session.
The announcement of no question in this coming monsoon session is getting mixed responses from the opposing parties. On one hand, Shivsena welcomed this idea where on other hand congress leaders are opposing it. The monsoon session of this year will start from 14 September to 1 October 2020. During the pandemic, both houses will have restricted zero hours. Congress leaders are all set to raise questions about no question hour. Ghulam Nabi Azaad, opposing leader of Rajya sabha, and Adhir Ranjan Chowdhry, floor leader of Lok sabha will write to the respective speaker about this matter. Some leaders think that no question hours mean that they will not able to ask questions and the government will slip away without giving required answers.
Congress Party chief spokesperson,
Randeep Surjewala said that The main motive of question hour is, to ensure that public welfare steps are taken and to fix the accountability of the government to the Parliament of India and through it to the entire population of India. By canceling the Question Hour, the government is running with the fear of answering the required questions to the citizens of India by their elected candidates."It seems that Congress has many questions to ask and with question hour being demolished they will not get their answers.
