Triple Talaq Bill, poor farmers top agenda, says Modi


Among the important bills that will be tabled are the Muslim Women's (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, related to triple talaq, the Codes of Wages Bill, Rights of Children to Free and Compulsory Education.

BJP MP Varun Gandhi has written to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan to start what he termed would be a "movement" to encourage the rich Lok Sabha members to forego their salaries for the remaining term.

Speaking on Budget 2018 that will be presented on February 1, Modi said that it will strengthen the economy of India. Today government made a strong decision that they will ensure passage of talaq bill in the Budget session of the parliament.

Lauding the achievements of the Government, President Ram Nath Kovind said, "Parliament has approved a bill granting working woman paid maternity leave of 26 weeks".

One of the primary contention of most opposition parties when the Bill was tabled during the winter session was the criminalisation provision.


In his first such address to Parliament, Kovind is expected to outline the government's thrust on development and empowerment of people, especially those from backward and weaker sections, official sources said. The Opposition has also asked the government to address these issues during the session.

The Prime Minister's appeal came during the all party meeting convened by the government ahead of Budget session of Parliament Sunday evening.

"These issues are important". He said, the government is ready to discuss any issue in Parliament.

The session is likely to conclude on April 6, with 31 sittings spread over 68 days. After a recess of almost a month, the session will resume from 5th March and will go on till 6th of April.

The opposition was represented at the meeting by Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge and Jyotiraditya Scindia, Mulayam Singh Yadav (SP), D Raja (CPI), Kanimozhi (DMK), Derek O'Brien and Sudip Bandhopadhyay (TMC), Tariq Anwar (NCP) and Dushyant Chautala (INLD).
