New Delhi | Jagran Politics Desk: With the monsoon session of the Parliament entering its last week, the Centre is looking to introduce crucial bills in the House for their passage. So far, 10 crucial bills -- including The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill, 2021 and The Essential Defence Services Bill, 2021 -- have been passed by the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

However, the opposition led by Congress has made it clear to the government that it wants a debate over the Pegasus snooping charges in the House. It has also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah should be present in the House during the debate over the Pegasus report.
