NEW DELHI: Rajya Sabha will discuss the communal violence in Delhi on Thursday along with two bills to replace ordinances — the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill and the Mineral Laws (Amendment) Bill.
The House was adjourned for the day on Wednesday after opposition members raised concern on the government not listing the two bills in the regular list of businesses in the morning. Despite repeated requests from deputy chairman Harivansh to discuss the two bills as the ordinances are set to lapse this week, the opposition members refused to relent.
“If this was so important, why was it not listed in the list of business?” TMC leader Derek OBrien asked.
The House witnessed three brief adjournments after 2 pm as government and opposition parties tried to reach an agreement on discussing the bills.
When the House met at 3.40 pm, parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi said, “As agreed in the meeting in the deputy chairman's chamber, the two ordinances (listed in supplementary agenda) will be discussed tomorrow at 11 am. Thereafter, there will be a discussion on Delhi violence in the House.”
