Latest Updates on Triple Talaq Bill in Rajya Sabha
Today, the BJP government postponed the introduction of the Triple Talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha till next Parliament session. This done because there was continuous uproar by the Congress-led opposition parties over alleged scam in the purchase of 36 Rafale fighter jets from France.
As per the reliable sources, the opposition parties sought more time to read the amendments that were introduced yesterday. Today, the Chairman Venkaiah Naidu announced this decision when the House met at 2:30 pm. He said that Triple Talaq Bill will not be taken up today as no consensus could be built around it.
It was the last day of the Monsoon Session of Parliament. However, as per reports, the government is mulling to introduce an ordinance or an emergency executive order to enact the law that has been pending in the Rajya Sabha since December last year.
