Parliament session 2024 live updates: Lok Sabha adjourned till July 1 amid Oppn's push for ‘NEET’ discussion

Parliament session 2024 live updates: Proceedings in both Houses—Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha—resumed on Friday. The Opposition demanded a discussion on the 'NEET issue' and irregularities in exams conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA), leading to the adjournment of both Houses until 12 pm. Although the Houses later resumed, Lok Sabha proceedings were subsequently adjourned until July 1.


BJP leader and former Union minister Anurag Thakur presented the Motion of Thanks for the President's address in the Lok Sabha today, with Prime Minister Narendra Modi expected to respond on July 2. BJP MP Bansuri Swaraj will second the motion, expressing gratitude for the President's address to the joint session of Parliament on Thursday.

In the Rajya Sabha, BJP's Sudhanshu Trivedi is presenting the motion, and the Prime Minister is anticipated to reply to the debate on July 3 in the Upper House.

President Droupadi Murmu addressed the joint session of Parliament on Thursday for the first time following the Lok Sabha elections. In her speech, she congratulated the Election Commission on successfully conducting the elections and discussed several key issues, including the violence in the Northeast and the Emergency imposed by the Congress government in 1975.

Latest highlights

- Opposition leaders criticised the President's speech to Parliament, calling it a government-written script filled with falsehoods and condemned the frequent references to the 1975 Emergency.

- They claimed that there is an "undeclared emergency" in the country, and the Modi government is attacking the Constitution.

- In her speech, President Droupadi Murmu described the 1975 Emergency as the darkest chapter in Indian history and praised the nation's triumph over unconstitutional forces.

- Earlier on Thursday, during the Lok Sabha session, Congress members chanted 'Jai Samvidhan' after Tharoor's oath, leading Speaker Om Birla to remark that Tharoor was already taking an oath on the Constitution. This prompted Congress MP Hooda to criticise Birla, who responded firmly.

- INDIA bloc leaders announced a protest on July 1 at the Gandhi Statue in Parliament, accusing the government of political vendetta, misuse of central agencies like CBI and ED against opposition leaders, and targeting prominent figures such as Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others.
