Parliament Budget Session to resume from today (March 2)
New Delhi : The second half of the Parliament Budget session will resume from today (March 2). The session is likely to be stormy as the Congress has cleared its intentions and will be demanding the resignation of Union Home Minister Amit Shah over Centre's failure in containing the violence across Delhi and several other states.
During the first half of the budget session a strong protest against the CAA was seen. The current budget session is likely to conclude on April 3.
Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday claimed that his party will press hard for the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah and will also unmask the government over violence in Delhi.
"We will raise all the important issues and unmask them. We will not spare them ( BJP). We are asking for Amit Shah's resignation. We will continue to do so in parliament as well," Chowdhury told ANI.
"Delhi violence took place under their watch. Now the same thing is happening in West Bengal. They are creating the same atmosphere. 'Goli Maro Saalo Ko' slogan is being raised here in West Bengal," he added.
The Congress leader also accused that it is the BJP that has been dividing the nation.
The BJP is the real leader of 'Tukde Tukde' gang. From North-East to Delhi, from Delhi to Karnataka, everywhere they are dividing the people," he added.
"The whole country is slowly getting embroiled in communal violence. Wherever they (BJP) go, they will only spew venom," said Chowdhury.
Meanwhile, the government will be pushing to pass legislative agenda that includes Bills relating to surrogacy and resolution of disputed tax.
Apart from Finance Bill 2020, Aircraft (Amendment) Bill and The Direct Tax Vivad Se Vishwas Bill were among the legislation introduced in the first half that concluded on February 11.
The government's legislative agenda for the Budget Session of Parliament includes nearly 45 Bills and seven financial items.
It includes replacing Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Ordinance, 2019 and the Mineral Laws (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 with Bills during the session.
