Govt to push for Triple Talaq Bill in Budget session

Ensure success of Budget Session PM Modi urges political leaders at all-party meet

The government said it hopes to get the controversial triple talaq bill passed in the Rajya Sabha in the budget session, setting the stage for heated debates, even as Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday reached out to the opposition at an all-party meeting seeking their suggestions.

The Government has convened an all-party meeting in the Parliament Library Building Sunday evening to evolve a consensus on a smooth session. The Union Budget will be presented on 1st February. "We have to pass this bill and protect the Muslim women", Modi told media, as he arrived at the Parliament to attend the much awaited session.

The Opposition parties also raised the issue of the January 12 press conference by four senior-most judges of the Supreme Court alleging selective allotment of cases to preferred Benches.

President Kovind says he is hopeful that triple talaq bill will be passed by Parliament so that Muslim women can live with dignity.

As many as 28 bills are expected to be tabled in the Lok Sabha this session, while 39 bills are listed for the Rajya Sabha.

The first part of the session will continue till February 9. He said, the government is ready to discuss any issue in Parliament.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will present the Economic Survey to Parliament soon after the conclusion of the President's address.

The opposition has also asked the government to allow a discussion on these issues during the Budget session.

Mahajan made the appeal to leaders of various parties at a dinner hosted by her, a day before the start of the budget session.

Opposition leaders are meeting on Monday to plan their joint strategy for the Budget session. After a recess of almost a month, the session will resume from 5th March and will go on till 6th of April.
