    Ahead of the Budget Session, an all-party meeting was held in Delhi on Sunday. Among several issues discussed during the meeting, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) urged the opposition parties to let the Triple Talaq Bill pass in the Rajya Sabha, which could not be passed during the Winter Session of Parliament.
