New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: Following the ruckus over the farm laws by the opposition leaders yesterday, the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday assembled for the third day of the Budget Session of the Parliament. Just ahead of the start of the session, Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma gave a suspension of business notice in Rajya Sabha over the ongoing farmer agitation against Central agri laws. Several other opposition parties including Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), All India Trinamool Congress (TMS), Communist Party of India (CPI), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Communist Party of India (Marxist) MPs also moved suspension of business notice in Rajya Sabha over ongoing farmer agitation.

The government and opposition parties in Rajya Sabha on Wednesday reached on consensus to allocate more time to discuss the motion of thanks and parties can raise their issues on farmers' protest during the discussion. The opposition on Tuesday staged a walkout from the Rajya Sabha after Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu rejected the 'suspension of business notice' to discuss ongoing protest over the contentious farm laws. Lok Sabha also witnessed three adjournments on Tuesday as opposition parties protested against the new farm laws.
