Parliament LIVE Updates: Citizenship Bill, Triple Talaq Bill To Be Tabled In Rajya Sabha Today

NEW DELHI: The last day of the Budget session in Parliament today is likely to be turbulent as 11 Bills will be tabled in Rajya Sabha, including the controversial Citizenship (Amendment) Bill 2016. Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad will move The Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, or the Triple Talaq Bill, that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government is keen to get parliamentary approval for. If these Bills are not approved today, all Bills introduced in Lok Sabha and not passed in Rajya Sabha will lapse. However, the government is trying to extend the Upper House sitting by a day or two to complete the legislative business which includes a discussion on the Budget and a few other bills.
