Share This

All-party meetingNEW DELHI : Government will make a fresh push for the passage of the contentious triple talaq bill in Parliament’s Budget Session starting tomorrow but is likely to meet strong resistance from the Opposition, which had stalled it in the last session, political leaders here said.
A day before the start of the session, the government met leaders of several political parties in parliament House and sought their cooperation in ensuring its success. The meeting was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, union ministers Rajnath Singh, Arun Jaitley and Ananth Kumar, besides leaders of the opposition and other parties.
The Government said it would “leave no stone unturned” to ensure that the triple talaq bill was passed in Parliament’s Budget session which starts on Monday, and said it would talk to various parties for a consensus on the issue.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kumar  said the Prime Minister urged the leaders of the parties to make the session successful. “We will leave no stone unturned for the passage of the triple talaq bill in the Rajya Sabha… We will approach various political parties to evolve a consensus for its passage.
Like GST was passed by consensus, this bill seeking to ban the practice of instant triple talaq (Talaq-e-Biddat) among Muslims will be passed,” he said when asked about the bill after the meeting.

To a question about the demands of various parties during the last session that the bill be referred to a select committee, he said it was now the property of the Rajya Sabha.
