India's '21 #MonsoonSession has ended, with minimal progress + frequent disruptions over a lack of discussion around BIG issues like the #Pegasus hacks & farm bills.

In the midst of it all, we take a look at how your digital rights fared. Follow 🧵 👇🏽 1/n…
It was an extraordinary session! In the beginning, protests around the #PegasusLeaks and farm bills led to multiple adjournments, with the government claiming a loss of 133 crore INR.

But the first 10 days also saw 12 important bills being passed with minimal discussion. 2/n
Average discussion time in the first 10 days: 7 minutes only!

Disruptions continued, with a huge ruckus in the Rajya Sabha on August 11th, leading to the house being adjourned for 2 whole days.

tl;dr: The parliament functioned for less than a quarter of the scheduled time. 3/n
