'Hope triple talaq bill will be passed in budget session'

Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said the union budget will give a new flight to the fast growing economy of the country as the budget session is commencing on Monday.

Speaking on the issue of triple talaq, the minister said that the Government would do everything to ensure passage of triple talaq bill in the Budget session.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kumar described the meeting as "fruitful", and said the Prime Minister urged the leaders of the parties to make the session successful.

As per the reports 28 bills will be listed to discuss in the Lok Sabha, while 39 bills are tabled for the Rajya Sabha for the forthcoming session. My colleagues & I will leave no stone unturned in talking to and convincing the political parties.

Rashtriya Janata Dal and other opposition parties raised issues related to Dalits, farmer suicides, unemployment, and Koregaon violence, among many others in the all-party meeting.

The first leg of the session will be between January 29 and February 9 during which the government will present the economic survey on January 29 followed by the Union Budget on February 1.

Sources in the Opposition say both issues will dominate the first week of the Budget Session that begins with a joint address to both Houses by President Ram Nath Kovind.

With the BJP-led NDA government presenting its last full fledged budget before the next Lok Sabha polls scheduled for 2019, there is expectation that it will have a strong political overtone.

Both bills carry political significance for the BJP which is a strong votary of the abolition of instant triple talaq among Muslims, a practice declared void by the Supreme Court previous year.

The instant triple talaq bill criminalises the practice of instant divorce among the Muslim community, with up to three years in jail for the husband.
