During the session, the Muslim Women Right on Marriage Bill related to triple talaq and legislation on granting Constitutional status to the Backward Class Commission are among the important bills which will be taken up for discussion and passage.
Earlier speaking in the BJP's parliamentary party executive meeting also, PM Modi on Friday stressed on maximum attendance of the MPs in both the houses, BJP MP Sharad Tripathi, who was present in the meeting, said. "The Winter Session of Parliament is starting and I am confident that it will be productive session".
Leaders of a large number of Opposition parties, including the Congress, NCP, Trinamool Congress (TMC), Samajwadi Party (SP), RJD, J&K National Conference and the Left parties met in the chamber of the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Ghulam Nabi Azad, and discussed key issues to be raised in Parliament.
A day before the start of the winter session of Parliament, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government has convened an all-party meeting on Thursday.
Congress and other opposition parties had slammed the government over delaying the winter session, and accusing it of undermining Parliament with the short session.
This is the shortest winter session in nearly twenty years. I hope for positive and innovative arguments. Also, it is also being regarded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi, being the former Chief Minister of Gujarat and the star campaigner of the party wanted to for the time being only concentrate on the Gujarat elections. After the 1st day both houses were adjourned till Monday.
Opposition parties has strongly criticised the election watchdog over its "inaction" regarding alleged violation of the Model Code of Conduct by PM Modi in Gujarat and said the "attitude" of the poll body has cast an "ominous shadow" on its "credibility".
"We are always in favor of constructive suggestion, we are very much interested to run Parliament & issues to be discussed, provided the Govt should take interest and create such an atmosphere which is conducive for discussion".
But Naidu disallowed it.
When the House met again, Azad raised the issue amid the uproar and the House was adjourned again till 3 pm by deputy chairman PJ Kurien.
When Kurien said it was a decision of the Supreme Court, Agarwal said he had not criticised the top court but his questions were directed at the government.
Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar said the Supplementary Demand for Grants and three ordinances including GST compensation to states will be taken up.
