New Delhi, August 11
After days of disruptions and bad blood between the government and the opposition in the Monsoon Session of Parliament, there were happy faces today at a meeting of leaders called by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla post the adjournment of the House this morning.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress President Sonia Gandhi, seated not too far apart, shared smiles and space after 17 days of bickering between their parties over the Pegasus snooping issue.
Also present in the meeting held at the Speaker’s chamber were Home Minister Amit Shah and leaders of all Opposition parties in the Lok Sabha.
Birla later tweeted a picture of the happy faces, a departure from norm in the just-concluded session of Parliament, where the Opposition and the government remained daggers drawn.
