The party’s Lok Sabha leader and Kolkata (North) MP Sudip Bandopadhyay and Trinamul Congress Rajya Sabha MP and party’s national spokesperson Derek O’Brien raised these 10 issues relating on unemployment, price rise of essential fuel prices, including law for Minimum Support Price.

The Trinamul MPs also alleged that federal structure is being weakened in multiple ways. They also demanded that disinvestment of profitable PSUs must stop.

The Trinamul MPs also asserted that BSF jurisdiction should be restricted to 15 kms from the international border and not 50 km as has recently been implemented.

They demanded a discussion on Pegasus issue and alleged government disrupted monsoon session on Pegasus issues and did not allow them to discuss on the issue.

They also wanted a discussion on present Covid situation in India with a new variant of the pandemic being reported. They also wanted Centre’s policy regarding vaccination to be discussed in the Parliament.

Several prominent leaders from Opposition parties were in attendance at the all-party meeting. This includes Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge, Adhir R Chowdhury and Anand Sharma from Congress, Sudip Bandopadhyay and Derek Obrien from TMC, TR Baalu and T Siva from DMK, and Sharad Pawar from the NCP.

Trinamul MPs from both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha demanded that BJP should place Women’s Reservation Bill on the floor of the Parliament.

Trinamul Rajya Sabha MP and party’s national spokesperson DerekO’Brien said, “Government refused to discuss Pegasus on floor of the Parliament in the Monsoon Session and then SC spoke. 

Similarly, government brutally bulldozed Farm Bills in Parliament. And then farmers won. 

“Today at all-party meet before #Winter Session we did spot splattered eggs on Centre’s face,”

Mr O’Brien stated.

Meanwhile, the Winter Session of Parliament is set to begin on a stormy note on Monday, with the government ready to bring in a bill to repeal the three contentious farm laws.

The Farm Laws Repeal Bill is slated to be introduced in the Lok Sabha. The bill states that though “only a small group of farmers are protesting” against these legislations, the need of the hour is to take along everyone for inclusive growth.
