#Parliament Session : Opposition To Corner Government On Delhi Riots , Economy And Other Issues

The second half of the Budget Session of Parliament beginning On March 2 and which runs till April 3 , is expected to be stormy one .  The government is expected to push its legislative agenda that includes Bills relating to surrogacy and resolution of disputed tax. Government is  expected to face the heat over its handling of the Economy and the low GDP numbers.

It is learnt form media reports that the  Congress will strongly raise the issue of communal riots in Delhi during the second part of the budget session in Parliament and demand home minister Amit Shah’s resignation over alleged police lapses.

 The Congress is likely to submit adjournment motion notices in both Houses of Parliament on Monday, demanding a debate over the violence in Delhi, sources said.
Congress’ leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury said the party will strongly raise the issue of riot-torn Delhi and ask why the violence happened.
“The government has miserably failed to maintain law and order. I think there must be some sort of a nexus between the rioters and a section of police officials which resulted in gruesome killings and arson that has tarnished our image across the globe. This is a matter of serious concern for us,” he told PTI.
“We will continue to raise the demand of home minister Amit Shah’s resignation on the floor of the House,” Chowdhury said.
BJP’s former ally is set to corner the government as well . “Riots took place in the national capital for three days and could not be controlled despite the fact that there is a strong govt at the Centre. It should be discussed in the next session of Parliament as to how and why it occurred,” Sanjay Raut told ANI.

Forty-two persons have been killed in violence in Delhi earlier this week and some opposition parties including the Congress have sought the resignation of Home Minister Amit Shah.  The Congress has accused the Central and Delhi governments of failing to contain the violence that erupted in parts of northeast Delhi.

Sources said a meeting was held at the residence of party chief Sonia Gandhi which discussed party’s strategy to corner the government in Parliament on Delhi violence.

The BJP has accused Congress of “politicising” the violence and said there was “instigation” by opposition leaders to protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.  Congress has also accused the BJP-led government of ruining the Indian economy by its “monumental mismanagement.”

Congress leader Anand Sharma said the GDP for the third quarter was at 4.7 per cent and it was the seventh consecutive quarter when the GDP has fallen.

The first half of the Budget Session of Parliament, which began on January 31 with an address by President Ram Nath Kovind to the joint sitting of two houses, saw protests over the CAA.

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.

The Union Budget was presented on February 1 and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman replied to the debate on the budget.
