Opposition moves notices in parliament to discuss election laws bill

NEW DELHI: On Tuesday, Congress MPs moved adjournment notices in both the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha to discuss the Bill linking electoral rolls to Aadhaar and the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

While Manish Tewari moved an adjournment notice in the Lok Sabha over linking Aadhaar with Voter ID, Deepender Hooda requested a discussion in the Upper House on the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

According to Tewari's notice, the Lok Sabha passed 'The Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021' on Monday, despite opposition parties' protests. The Bill intends to connect electoral rolls to the Aadhaar ecosystem. This will allow electoral registration officers to request the Aadhaar number of people wishing to register as voters in order to establish their identity." The Bill was passed in the Lok Sabha amid protests on Monday and has been scheduled for consideration and passage in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday.

Deepender demanded adequate compensation for farmers as well as the resignation of Minister of State for Home Ajay Misra. In the Lok Sabha, Manickam Tagore moved a similar notice. The government must pass two bills, and the BJP has issued a whip to ensure that all MPs are present in the House. On Tuesday, the Lok Sabha is expected to debate and vote on the "Chartered Accountants, Cost and Works Accountants, and Company Secretaries (Amendment) Bill, 2021."
