LS Speaker seeks cooperation from parties for smooth Budget session

LS Speaker seeks cooperation from parties for smooth Budget session

The first phase of the Budget session will begin on Monday when President Ram Nath Kovind will address a joint session of both the houses.

He also said that in this session the parties would get a month's time and they should make most use of our healthy system of parliamentary committees and discuss various aspects of the budget.

After attending the all-party meeting in the national capital, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar on Sunday said that the Government is hopeful of getting the "Triple Talaq" Bill passed in Rajya Sabha similar to GST. "Today, everyone said they will cooperate, so I hope the Budget session goes on smoothly".

Calling the all-party meeting "fruitful", Kumar said, "Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged political leaders at the meeting to ensure success of the budget session".

The Lok Sabha had passed the bill seeking imprisonment for Muslim men convicted of practising instant triple talaq, but a united Opposition had stalled it in the Rajya Sabha, where the NDA lacks a majority.

Coming Next Week: Super Blue Blood Moon
It's at this time that you'll be able to see the max eclipse visible in Syracuse (which will only be a partial lunar eclipse ). It's not so much of a mind-blowing event as the blood moon , but it's a little more visually significant than the blue moon .

Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said the union budget will give a new flight to the fast growing economy of the country as the budget session is commencing on Monday.

Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Jaiprakash Narain Yadav also said the Opposition would want the government to speak in Parliament on issues of public importance including communal violence and atrocities on women.

Opposition parties are planning to corner the government on the issues of unemployment, price rise, rural distress and atrocities on Dalits.

While the President will outline the focus of the government's policies in his address, the Centre is expected to announce doles in this year's Budget which will be its last full fledged Budget before the next Lok Sabha polls in 2019.

The session is likely to see important bills, including one for the commission for backward classes and another on Triple Talaq.
