The #MonsoonSession of the Parliament concluded on August 8 and was the 17th Parliamentary session to be cut short. Read how this session fared for your digital rights in terms of productivity, unanswered questions posed by MPs & key legislations. šŸ§µ1/7ā€¦
Last month we identified 2 legislation pieces to be debated in this Session:
1āƒ£Competition (Amendment) Bill, '22
2āƒ£Draft Data Protection Bill, '21
The former was introduced in the Lok Sabha & the latter, shockingly withdrawn.

How does this impact you? 2/7ā€¦
Leaving Indians vulnerable without a data protection law, this withdrawal not only sets us back 4 years but, coupled with the unproductivity of this session, reveals a huge setback for digital rights in the country. 3/7

In the last week, not only 27 Opposition MPs have been suspended (4 in #LokSabha, 23 in #RajyaSabha), but as many as 97 Questions asked by these MPs have been DELETED & Govt has avoided answering these Qs!
There is NO provision in RULES to permit such deletion of Qs!
This dubious practice, which isn't permitted by Rules & has no logic, was first noticed in #MonsoonSession 2020, repeated in Monsoon Session 2021, Winter Session 2021 and now happening again in current #MonsoonSession2022.
See our earlier #Thread-
In the current #MonsoonSession, following is the tally of Qs 'DELETED'. Also, see pics of some Deleted Qs.
- 11 Qs asked by 4 suspended Opposition MPs in #LokSabha
- 86 Qs asked by 23 suspended Opposition MPs in #RajyaSabha
