Latest Updates: Parliament Resumes Budget Session Today
Budget Session: Parliament Resumes Today After 4-Day BreakThe budget session of Parliament is scheduled to recommence today, after a four-day hiatus. Previously, on March 29, both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha had adjourned due to the uproar by the opposition regarding the disqualification of Rahul Gandhi, a Congress leader, as MP.
The opposition parties were united in their demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) to investigate the Adani-Hindenburg issue. The issue pertains to alleged irregularities in the purchase of six submarines by the Indian Navy from French company DCNS, which had a partnership with Adani Group.
The disqualification of Rahul Gandhi as MP had also caused a lot of commotion in Parliament, with the opposition parties accusing the ruling government of playing politics. The Congress
leader was disqualified after he failed to declare his ownership of a company in the UK.
The opposition parties had demanded that the government withdraw the disqualification, but the ruling party had refused to do so. The Congress party had then staged a walkout from the Lok Sabha.
Opposition's Demand for JPC
The opposition parties have been pushing for a JPC into the Adani-Hindenburg issue, claiming that there were several irregularities in the purchase of the submarines. The JPC is a parliamentary committee that is set up to investigate specific issues and make recommendations to Parliament.
The opposition parties have accused the government of trying to cover up the Adani-Hindenburg issue and have demanded a thorough investigation. They have also alleged that the government is trying to shield

Adani Group, which is said to have close ties with the ruling party.
The ruling government has, however, denied all allegations of wrongdoing and has said that the purchase of the submarines was done in a transparent manner. The government has also said that it is ready to discuss the issue in Parliament and provide all necessary information.
Congress' Disqualification Drama
The disqualification of Rahul Gandhi as MP had caused a lot of drama in Parliament, with the opposition parties accusing the ruling government of playing politics. The Congress party had alleged that the ruling party had deliberately targeted Rahul Gandhi and had used the disqualification as a means to silence him.
The ruling party, on the other hand, had defended the disqualification, stating that Rahul Gandhi had
failed to declare his ownership of a company in the UK, which was a violation of the Constitution.
The Congress party had demanded that the disqualification be withdrawn, but the ruling party had refused to do so. The Congress had then staged a walkout from the Lok Sabha, accusing the government of being undemocratic.
The resumption of the budget session of Parliament is likely to see more drama, with the opposition parties pushing for a JPC into the Adani-Hindenburg issue and demanding the withdrawal of Rahul Gandhi's disqualification. The ruling party, on the other hand, is likely to defend its actions and deny any allegations of wrongdoing. It remains to be seen how the session will unfold and whether any meaningful discussions and debates will take place.
