'Hope triple talaq bill will be passed in budget session'

Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan held an all party meeting on Sunday before the commencement of budget session, which will start on Monday.

On January 29, President Ramnath Kovind will address the joint sitting of the two Houses while the Economic Survey will be tabled on the same day.

The Budget session of Parliament begins on Monday as the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) readies to present its last full budget on 1 February before its five-year term ends.

"My government has brought the Triple Talaq Bill to safeguard the rights of the Muslim women".

On Sunday, the government reached out to the opposition for a meeting of senior parliamentary leaders of various political parties and sought their cooperation for the smooth functioning of the budget session. Kumar said the "government will do everything to ensure passage of the triple talaq bill in the session". "Today, everyone said they will cooperate, so I hope the Budget session goes on smoothly".

"Like the way parties passed the GST unanimously, we are requesting them to pass this Bill, which is going to ban the practice of instant triple talaq (Talaq-e-Biddat) among Muslims", he said.

GDP Grew 2.6% in the Final Quarter of 2017
Imports, which subtract from GDP growth, increased at their fastest rate in more than seven years, up 13 9 per cent. Rather than fizzling, the expansion is being spurred on by robust consumer spending and business investment.

However, the opposition was perhaps not totally convinced with the government's claims.

Leaders of the opposition parties are likely to meet on Monday to push for unity and to discuss ways to together corner the government.

Rashtriya Janata Dal and other opposition parties raised issues related to Dalits, farmer suicides, unemployment, and Koregaon violence, among many others in the all-party meeting.

"We will also raise Ockhi fishermen issue, NEET issue and Women's Reservation Bill which has not been listed in the business advisory", she added.

Trinamool Congress leader Derek O'Brien said that the government cared little for Parliament.

An all-party meeting has also been convened by the government tomorrow to know about the views of top leaders on pertinent issues.
