Chidambaram listed out the several bills that might come up in either of the houses this session. He mentioned Anti Graft bills, Womens’ Reservation bill, SC-ST reservation amendments, Street Vendors protection bill etc, as bills that are already passed in one of the houses and to be placed in the other house.
Some bills, he mentioned are to be newly introduced, which are also important. He listed Rights of Persons with Disabilities bill, Communal Violence bill, Railways and general vote on account bills and finally the Telangana bill under this category.
Kamal Nath joined in the discussion and said that the disruption of the house is turning into a new strategy of not opposing, but halting the business of the house, which is a bad trend. He said that parties should be for or against an issue, and not be ambivalent and stop shadow boxing. Kamal Nath went on to say that “double standards are not good, If you are for Telangana, be clear, don’t attach conditions, ifs and buts…”.
Kamal Nath also observed that fewest ever bills were passed in this particular fifteenth Parliament. He too listed out the several bills that are to come up in this session.
