Parliament Monsoon Session: Center reacts to formation of new states in India. Minister of State for Home Nithyananda Roy revealed that there is no proposal on the matter of forming new states in the country at present to a question from Congress MP Adoor Prakash. The minister said that the government receives proposals and requests for the formation of new states, but no proposal is currently being considered by the centre. Also, in response to another question, he said that left-wing extremism has declined in the country. Nithyananda Roy said that the number of districts affected by Naxals was 70 in 2014 and will come down to 46 by 2021.
On the other hand, 19 MPs were attacked in the Rajya Sabha today for disrupting the activities of the House. However, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that he did not like this suspension and that this decision was taken under the circumstances. Although the leaders of the opposition party are accusing the government of avoiding the discussion, in reality it is the opposition parties that are doing this work. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will discuss the issue of price hike after she recovers from Corona. Compared to many countries, India has done better in curbing price rise and inflation. Meanwhile, as part of the monsoon sessions of the Parliament, the agitations of the opposition parties are continuing in both the Houses.
