Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge calls meeting of parliamentary leaders of INDIA bloc today

Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge has called a meeting of Parliamentary leaders of various opposition parties of the INDIA bloc on Tuesday morning.

The meeting will be held in the Leader of Opposition (LoP) chamber at 10.00 am.

Meanwhile, the first day of the Winter Session of Parliament saw two bills being passed with the Rajya Sabha also deciding to discontinue suspension of AAP MP Raghav Chadha.

The Standing committee reports on ‘The Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023’, ‘The Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, 2023’, and ‘The Bharatiya Sakshya Bill, 2023’ were tabled in the two Houses. The reports were submitted to the Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar on November 10 by Brij Lal, MP and Chairman of the Department-related Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs. The three bills are on the agenda of the government for passage in the winter session of Parliament.

Rajya Sabha passed the Bill to repeal the Indian Post Office Act, 1898 and to consolidate and amend the law relating to the post offices in India.

Lok Sabha passed the Advocates (Amendment) Bill, 2023 which is in line with the government’s policy of repealing all obsolete laws or pre-independence Acts which have lost their utility.

The Government in consultation with the Bar Council of India has decided to repeal the Legal Practitioners Act, 1879. It has decided to amend the Advocates Act, 1961 by incorporating the provisions of section 36 of the Legal Practitioners Act, 1879 in the Advocates Act, 1961 so as to reduce the number of superfluous enactments in the statute book.

The Congress on Monday said the party will seek discussion on people-centric issues such as unemployment, price rise and the “widening gap between the rich and the poor” in the country during the Winter Session of the parliament, which began today.

The party also intends to seek discussion on the border situation and the country’s foreign policy.
