Led by speaker Om Birla, Lok Sabha sets productivity record | India News

NEW DELHI: Although the winter session of Parliament started on a stormy note, a day in Lok Sabha has been the most productive ever. The Lower House claims to have set some sort of record on December 2 for being the most productive day in its history.
According to Lok Sabha officials, a record was set on December 2 in the history of the House. They said: “December 2 was the day that the lower house’s productivity was 204%, the highest on record. ”
Officials added, “A story was created on December 2 under the leadership of Lok Sabha President Om Birla.
The story was created when the Lok Sabha discussed Covid-19 on December 2. No less than 96 deputies took part in the discussion. The discussion on Covid-19 lasted 11 hours and three minutes.
Birla praised MPs for their healthy and productive contributions to the record-setting debate that set the House up.
The winter session of Parliament began on November 29 when the opposition protested against the government demanding a discussion on the repeal of the three farm laws.
On the same day, Rajya Sabha’s vice president and chairman, Mr. Venkaiah Naidu, suspended 12 MPs from various opposition parties throughout the winter session for unprecedented unruly behavior on August 11 during the monsoon session.
Both Houses of Parliament witnessed scenes of pandemonium the next day. However, Om Birla invited the leaders of all opposition parties and asked them to allow the proper functioning of Parliament.
All opposition parties except Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) gave in at the speaker’s request.
After regular business on December 1 despite slogans from TRS MPs demanding a national crop sourcing policy, the Lok Sabha started limping back to normal.
On December 2, he set some sort of record while discussing Covid-19.
According to sources, the House only operated for 24 minutes each on November 29 and 30, registering a productivity of 6.7 percent each.
On December 1, the Lok Sabha ran for 422 minutes and registered a productivity of 117%.
He set a record on December 2 by running for 735 minutes and registering 204% productivity.
Birla has to her credit the holding of the first session of the current 17th Lok Sabha without any adjournment. There was not a single second of adjournment of the session held after the BJP-led NDA retained power and Om Birla replaced Sumitra Mahajan as Speaker of the Lower House. .
However, by contrast, the previous monsoon session of Parliament was one of the worst ever, with Congress-led opposition disrupting business for most of the period over the demand for the repeal of the three farm reform laws and an investigation into the Pegasus spyware problem.
