Topic Description:

The Monsoon session of Parliament ended on Wednesday, two days ahead of schedule amid continued standoff between the government and the Opposition parties. During the session, which began on July 19th, proceedings of both Houses were interrupted regularly due to protests by Opposition members over several issues. Statistics show that the Parliament functioned for less than a quarter of the scheduled time. If we look at the productivity of the Rajya Sabha during the Monsoon Session, it was 29%, while the Average Productivity of the previous 5 sessions has been 95%. The Lok Sabha saw a productivity 22.00% during the just concluded session. More than 74 hours were lost to disruptions. Amid protests, some Bills were passed. However, the session also witnessed unruly scenes that lower the image of the temple of democracy.
