The meeting, which is scheduled to be presided over by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, will be hosted by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.
The floor leaders of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha met on Thursday, called by Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi. The purpose of the conference is to plan the legislative program and make sure that the 15-session Winter Session of the legislature runs smoothly. It ends on December 22.
Senior political figures attending the meeting include NCP leader Fouzia Khan, RSP leader N K Premachandran, Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh, Gaurav Gogoi, and Pramod Tiwari, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, and Congress leader Sudip Bandyopadhyay.
Twelve of the 37 legislation that are presently pending in Parliament are scheduled for consideration and passage, while seven bills are scheduled for introduction, consideration, and passage. Among these are three measures to supersede the Evidence Act, the Code of Criminal Procedure, and the Indian Penal Code, three criminal legislations from the colonial era.
The appointment of the chief election commissioner and election commissioners is the subject of another important measure that is currently sitting in Parliament. The opposition and past top election commissioners did not press for its passage during the extraordinary session of Parliament, according to the government. The purpose of the law is to equalize the standing of the cabinet secretary with that of the CEC and ECs. They currently have the status of Supreme Court judges.
On the first day of the Winter Session, the Lok Sabha will hear the Ethics Committee’s report regarding the “cash-for-query” allegations made against Mahua Moitra, the MP representing the Trinamool Congress. The first report of the Ethics Committee, which was approved by a 6:4 majority, will be presented to the House by Vinod Kumar Sonkar, the chairperson, according to the agenda materials distributed by the Lok Sabha Secretariat.
Preneet Kaur, the BJP-affiliated wife of former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, was among the lawmakers who supported the report.
It was said in the draft that “serious misdemeanors on the part of Mahua Moitra call for severe punishment.”
Consequently, the Committee suggests that Mahua Moitra, MP, be removed from the Seventeenth Lok Sabha. According to the study, “The Committee recommends an intense, legal, institutional inquiry by the Government of India in a time-bound manner in light of Mahua Moitra’s highly objectionable, unethical, heinous, and criminal conduct.”
Before the panel’s proposed expulsion takes effect, the House must adopt the report.
