Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary wanted to convene a meeting of parliament to discuss issues related to farmers and amend laws.

In the letter, Prahlad Joshi quoted Adhiranjan Chaudhary’s letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker as saying that the monsoon session was also delayed as the situation was extraordinary due to the Corona epidemic. Now, winter days are very important to control the epidemic, and recently there has been an increase in the incidence of corona in Delhi. It is now mid-December, and vaccinations are coming soon, so in discussions with floor leaders of various parties, it was suggested not to call a winter session.
