Govt convenes all party meeting ahead of Budget session

Parliament

January 29 (NT): The Budget session of the Parliament is to start on Monday at 11 am with the address of President Ram Nath Kovind.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi requested all political parties to make Triple Talaq Bill pass in the Budget session of the Parliament commencing on Monday, January 29. "Today, everyone said they will cooperate, so I hope the Budget session goes on smoothly".

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley will announce the budget in the Parliament on Feb 1. "Opposition raised some concerns during the all party meeting on Sunday and so we expect that there will be disruption on a few issues", a senior leader of the NDA said, requesting anonymity.

The deal was rumoured to potentially include French Olivier Giroud as a makeweight, however Wenger has ruled that out, addressing the striker's future.

Speaking on the issue of triple talaq, the minister said that the Government would do everything to ensure passage of triple talaq bill in the Budget session.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi arrived at Parliament for the Budget session and in his press meet, he urged all parties to have active participation for Budget session.

Both bills carry political significance for the BJP which is strong votary of the abolition of instant triple talaq among Muslims, a practice declared void by the Supreme Court previous year.

Moreover, it is going to be the first blue moon eclipse in 2018, and this is why many are calling it as "Super Blue Blood Moon ". Mark your calendars for January 20, 2019: a total lunar eclipse will start in the evening and run into the early morning hours.

"We are very hopeful that the Bill, which is going to negate "Talaq-e-Biddat" and pave the way for empowering Muslim women, will be passed in the Rajya Sabha, too", he said. The BJP Parliamentary Party will also hold a meeting on Monday to discuss its strategy.

While the President will outline the focus of the government's policies in his address, the Centre is expected to announce doles in this year's Budget which will be its last full fledged Budget before the next Lok Sabha polls in 2019. Kumar said the "government will do everything to ensure passage of the triple talaq bill in the session".

While the Government wants to push the Bill on instant triple talaq pending in the Rajya Sabha along with the one which seeks to grant constitutional status to the OBC Commission, the Opposition plans to counter the government on issues such as rising incidents of rapes, alleged "attack" on constitutional institutions and the plight of traders.
