During the Corona epidemic, the opposition is demanding a virtual meeting.
Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge has urged Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu to allow a meeting of Parliament’s standing committees through digital means. Kharge had said that Parliament cannot remain a mute spectator on the plight of the people.
TMC also demands virtual meeting The Trinamool Congress has also written a letter to Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu demanding a virtual meeting of the Parliamentary Committee. Derek O’Brien of TMC wrote a letter saying that a meeting of parliamentary committees is needed so that issues of public interest can be raised in time and discussed, especially in Kovid’s time. This third letter of the TMC was written this month in reference to the meeting of the Parliamentary Committee through virtual medium, even before the first letter was written in July 2020 and the second in August 2020.
