TMC, Left to insist on referring triple talaq bill to select committee

  • Anti-triple talaq bill in RS tomorrow

The bill is facing reservations from some opposition parties over its misuse by women in the future.

Sources said main Opposition, Congress, is still keeping the government guessing on whether it will just demand on the floor of the House that the Bill be sent to a select committee of the Rajya Sabha and not press for it, or insist that it be sent to the panel.

Most parties are against the provision for jailing offenders - they say they don't want a civil matter to be criminalised.

The government had appealed to the Congress to drop its move to push for amendments to the Bill.

The opposition parties including the Congress, Left, AIADMK and the DMK are in favour of sending the Muslim Women Protection of Rights in Marriage Bill 2017 to the Standing Committee but the government rejected the demand.

This Bill gives power to the victim to approach a magistrate seeking "subsistence allowance" for herself and minor children in the case of instant triple talaq or talaq-e-biddat.

Several allies are also concerned as the system can not be integrated into NATO's existing military architecture. The S-400 can engage targets at a distance of 400 kilometers and at an altitude of up to 30 kilometers.

At the meeting of the business advisory committee, nearly all Opposition parties - Congress, SP, BSP, CPI, CPM, Trinamool Congress, DMK, NCP and BJD - favoured the select committee option.

As per the Rajya Sabha's list of business, the instant talaq Bill should be taken up by the House on Tuesday. The govt is set to put up the bill for consideration in the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. "When it comes to the Rajya Sabha, we will demand that it should be sent to a select committee", he said.

However, owing to the lack of a majority of the government in the Rajya Sabha, there are chances that the Bill may be impeded or blocked. "Maybe tomorrow", Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar told reporters outside Parliament.

The sources said the ministers were learnt to have told the opposition members that the bill cannot be sent to a select committee on the basis of views expressed in the BAC and if they want to do so, they can defeat it on the floor of the House. There is no black and white solution to this, We have to see how the debate evolves... what is actually included and how is it implementable.... and until it is equitable for all women under all clauses of talaq.

What is anti-triple talaq bill?
