7 key bills face Rajya Sabha test, opposition insists on referral to select committee
New Delhi, July 25: There are at least seven bills that could run into trouble in the Rajya Sabha. These include both the Triple Talaq, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Amendment bills and a bill to amend the Right to Information Act.
The Code Wages Bill, the Occupational Safety, Health and Working Conditions Code Bill, the Inter-State River Waters Disputes (Amendment) Bill and the DNA Technology (Use and Application) Bill also face the Rajya Sabha test.
The opposition parties after a meeting decided that the bills should be sent to the select committee. The government is likely to go in for a compromise and propose that the RTI bill be referred to a select committee.
17 parties including a BJD and TRS have signed a resolution that the bill be referred to a select committee.
