BJP and Congress set to corner each other in the second half of budget session:


New Delhi: April 25: The second half of the budget session began today. Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan had called an all Party meeting on Sunday for smooth functioning of the house, but the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and the opposition led by the Congress may try to corner each other on the issues like Crisis in Uttarakhand, the change of Government in Arunachal Pradesh and the Ishrat Jahan case.

In all-party meeting held on Sunday, Congress leaders already demanded that there should be a discussion on Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh. The Arunachal Pradesh government fell in February following defections by several legislators from the Congress, which the party blames on the BJP.

The Congress and Left parties also plan to bring a resolution against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Rajya Sabha, alleging that the central government was interfering in the affairs of state governments.

During the session, the government will seek to ratify President’s rule in Uttarakhand, a move that will face stiff resistance from the Congress.

This session will continue till 13 May. During this period, the Lok Sabha will discuss 13 bills, while the government has listed 11 bills to be taken up in the Rajya Sabha.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday, hoped that members of all parties will discuss issues in a democratic spirit and take good decisions.
