News agency ANI quoting sources reported that in the all-party meeting held on Monday, the Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party raised the issue of the Chinese intrusion and asked for a discussion in the Parliament.
“To this, the Government responded by saying that some matters can’t be discussed on the floor of the house as it concerns security,” the source told ANI.
However, while talking to reporters, the GoI Parliamentary Affairs minister Pralhad Joshi said that the government is ready to discuss all the issues.
“37 leaders from 27 parties participated in the all-party meeting today. Today’s meeting went well. I seek the cooperation of the opposition to run the House well. We are ready to discuss all issues,” he added.
Sasmit Patra, BJD MP after the meeting, said, “Women’s Reservation Bill is going to be a priority for BJD in this session. We’ve been pushing for the passage of the Bill. We’ll also build consensus with like-minded parties to put pressure on the Government to ensure that the Bill is passed.”
Several opposition parties raised critical issues, including the recent stock market matter concerning industrialist Gautam Adani. MPs asked the government to hold a discussion on the matter as it concerns the economy of the country.
