BJP MPs support bill to ban WMD fundraising | India News


NEW DELHI: The Rajya Sabha was held on Monday, the first time since the start of the monsoon session, although the opposition continued to disrupt proceedings with loud protests and slogans, forcing three adjournments.
While a discussion on the invoice aimed at banning the financing of activities related to weapons of mass destruction was discussed, the speakers from the opposition parties chose not to join the discussion. This meant that only speakers from the BJP or its allies remained to discuss the bill. Meanwhile, opposition MPs have raised points of order from time to time.
The speakers – who included Mahesh JethmalaniGVL Narasimha Rao Brij LalGK Vasan and Ajay Pratap Singh — endorsed the bill saying it was necessary to ensure that weapons of mass destruction do not fall into the hands of terrorists and non-state actors and also to enforce the law compliance with UNSCR 1540. which requires member states to pass laws to limit WMD funding and financing. The bill will be considered for passage on Tuesday.
The opposition uproar – which began after the Speaker announced the rejection of notices given by several MPs for a discussion of rising prices, inflation and the GST hike under Rule 267 – has prevented debate on a motion calling for attention to the effects of Covid, proposed by NCP MP Fauzia Khan. Opinions under Rule 267 (providing for the suspension of activities) on several issues such as the government’s misuse of polling companies and price gouging were dismissed. Following this, Mallikarjun Kharge accused the government of “running away” from a discussion.
