Five more hectic days for govt. in Parliament

It plans to introduce 13 Bills and take up talaq ordinance

The last five working days of the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha is going to be jam-packed with pending legislation as government plans to introduce 13 Bills and take up the triple talaq ordinance amid speculation about extending the session that ends on July 26 to August 2. Detailing the business for next week, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs V. Muraleedharan told the Rajya Sabha that the government planned to move 13 Bills in the Lok Sabha, which will come to the Upper House. Other than these, there are pending ordinances such as the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Ordinance, 2019 that needed to be taken up. The Upper House also has to debate and pass the Budget, which was cleared by the Lok Sabha on Thursday. There is no clarity yet on whether the government will indeed extend the session. According to sources, the Opposition is not on board as the session has been on for nearly a month now.  The Opposition alleged that none of the legislation had passed the scrutiny of standing committees as the panels had not been formed yet. “Except the Motor Vehicles Bill, none of the Bills has been scrutinised,” Trinamool Congress floor leader Derek O’Brien said.
