Seeing a fast passing of these bills within 10 minutes, Opposition MPs were staging protests against the government.

Earlier on Wednesday, six TMC MPs were suspended from the Rajya Sabha after they created a ruckus in the morning over the Pegasus spying issue. On the other hand, Farmer Unions and Opposition leaders have also held demonstrations outside the Parliament demanding to scrap the Centre's three contentious farm bills. Due to such uproars, both Houses have been facing several adjournments.
