New Delhi: The Winter Session entered its fourth day with heated debates on electoral bonds, NRC and pollution crisis causing an uproar in the Parliament on Thursday.
A war of words broke out between the BJP and the AAP after BJP MLA Vijay Goel accused the Kejriwal-led Delhi government of just handing over masks and otherwise being inactive about the pollution situation. “Fifty lakh masks have been distributed but no one is seen wearing them. There are so many pollutants in water that we are being forced to drink it from the bottles,” Goel charged at the AAP government.
The Congress on Wednesday demanded that the government must disclose all details about electoral bonds before Parliament alleging that the scheme resulted in money laundering.
The Lok Sabha broke into massive hue and cry after the Congress raked up the issue on electoral bonds scheme. The opposition party subsequently staged a walkout accusing the BJP of lack of transparency in the electoral bonds. The Lok Sabha also took up the National Institute of Design (Amendment) Bill 2019, for discussion and passage.
The Upper House also discussed the Surrogacy (Regulation) Bill, 2019, the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2019 for further consideration following yesterday’s debate. The Dam Safety Bill, 2019 will also be taken up for discussion and passage.
