Manipur Issue In Parliament: Floor Leaders Of Opposition To Meet On Monday

In the Monsoon Session of Parliament, the uproar over the incident in Manipur continues. The opposition is adamant about the Prime Minister’s statement regarding this incident. 

The opposition has called an important meeting of the floor leaders of both houses of Parliament at 10 am on July 24. 

On Monday, at 10.30 am, the MPs of the coalition of opposition parties will protest in front of the Gandhi statue in the Parliament House, demanding the statement of the PM. 

The proceedings of Parliament were marred by uproar on the issue of Manipur on Thursday and Friday as well. 

The opposition demands that the situation in Manipur be discussed in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha under Rule 267.

 However, the government wants to hold a discussion under Rule 176. 

Along with this, according to the ruling party, only the Home Minister will answer on this issue in the House. 

Although both the ruling party and the opposition are ready to discuss Manipur, but the matter is stuck on the rules. 

If there is a debate on this under 176, then it will be discussed for a short duration, about two and a half hours. There is no voting after the debate and only the concerned minister answers on it. 

On the other hand, when there is a debate under Rule 267, the rest of the work of the House is postponed and only one issue continues to be debated. At the same time, after the end of the debate, voting also takes place at the end.
