Parliament Winter Sessions Starts Today, CAB Likely to be Tabled
GUWAHATI: The Winter Session of Parliament will be starting today, November 18 in the national capital.
The government’s top agenda in this session is to table the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019, and getting it passed.
The government was unable to pass in its previous tenure. As per the PRS Legislative Research, about 35 legislations, including the crucial Industrial Relations Code, will be taken up during the session.
As per reports the session will begin with obituary references to two members of the Upper House — former Union ministers Arun Jaitley and Ram Jethmalani — and former external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj. It will also pay tributes to Gurudas Dasgupta, a former member of both the Houses who died on October 31.
The opposition will also likely storm the Kashmir issue and the economic slowdown in the country.
