Parliament Session: Eyes On Rahul Gandhi’s Return To LS, Govt to Table Delhi Services Bill In RS Today
Logjam in Parliament is likely to continue today as The Centre would seek passage of Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, 2023, in Lok Sabha, whose introduction last week was vehemently opposed by Opposition. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will also present Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2023, before Rajya Sabha today after it was cleared in Lower House following a walkout by Opposition.
Meanwhile, all eyes are also set on reinstating Rahul Gandhi as Member of Parliament after Supreme Court stayed his conviction in ‘Modi’ surname case last week.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday had said the opposition parties are only supporting Delhi Services Bill for the sake of their alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). The Lok Sabha passed Delhi Services Bill amid protests by the opposition on Thursday.
While the ‘INDIA’ bloc remains united on the matter, parties like Biju Janata Dal (BJD) and Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) have refused to be a part of this unity and decided to support the Bill.
Congress MP Manickam Tagore on Sunday took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying the Opposition Member of Parliament (MPs) are waiting for Prime Minister Modi to speak in the Parliament, in an apparent reference to the Manipur situation.
The Opposition, which is being spearheaded by Congress, has been demanding Prime Minister’s statement in Parliament over the Manipur situation.
“My Lok Sabha colleagues and I have been demanding the PM to speak in Parliament ever since 20 July,” the Congress MP said. “We wait in Lok Sabha for him,” Manickam Tagore wrote in a tweet.
