The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been adjourned sine die ahead of schedule on Wednesday today. Earlier today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with top members of his cabinet in the Parliament to discuss various issues and the government’s strategy.
Since the beginning of the winter session on November 29, both the Houses of Parliament witnessed continuous disruptions by the Opposition’s ruckus over several issues including the suspension of 12 MPs, the Lakhimpur Kheri incident, and others. The winter session is scheduled to culminate on December 23.
On Tuesday, the Rajya Sabha passed, through a voice vote and amid opposition protests, the bill to link Aadhaar with voter ID, a day after the reform was approved in the Lok Sabha.
The Lower House, on the other hand, witnessed a heated discussion on the bill which aims to raise the minimum marriageable age, from the current 18 to 21, for women. The legislation, which was introduced on Monday, was then sent to a parliamentary committee for scrutiny.
