"We are in talks with the Congress and others for the triple talaq bill, and hope for a smooth passage in the Rajya Sabha".
At the meeting of the business advisory committee, nearly all Opposition parties - Congress, SP, BSP, CPI, CPM, Trinamool Congress, DMK, NCP and BJD - favoured the select committee option. "If that's not possible, the bill should at least be sent to a standing committee so that they can remove discrepancies from the bill". And in such a situation, the bill is likely to be passed by the Upper House on Wednesday itself. As the govt doesn't have a majority in the upper house, it has engaged opposition parties in dialogue to ensure the legislation passes the upper house without a hitch to empower muslim women and protect their rights as well as dignity.
The government had appealed to the Congress to drop its move to push for amendments to the Bill. The Congress party, which demanded the bill to be referred to standing committee, may have its way as the bill may finally be referred to a parliamentary committee for review.
Sources said that though both Congress, which was represented by Leader of the Opposition in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and senior leader Anand Sharma, and Trinamul Congress, represented by Derek O' Brien, sought the select committee route for the bill in the Business Advisory Committee meeting held on Tuesday evening, they were unlikely to press for it on the floor of the House in case of a division vote. The Congress and some other parties wanted more time for deliberating on the bill. The government plans to table the bill in the Rajya Sabha, where it is in a minority, on Wednesday. There was, however, no official word from the Congress about the suggestion it was claimed to have made.
"We are having continuous talks with the Oppo-sition parties, including the Congress. When it comes to the Rajya Sabha, we will demand that it should be sent to a select committee", he said.
The Congress would consult a larger opposition before finalising its stand on the contentious bill which proposed to ban instant triple talaq and make the practice a cognisable offence, party sources said.
"The Supreme Court has already set aside triple talaq as illegal and arbitrary, and hence, there is no need for further legislation on it", said Dr Qasim Rasool Ilyas, member of AIMPLD. The triple talaq bill is one of them. It is, however, treading cautiously to avoid taking a position against what is seen as a Bill that favours Muslim women.
