The Lok Sabha had on Thursday passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018. It is expected to be considered by the Rajya Sabha next week.
Congress MP and AICC general secretary K C Venugopal on Saturday said the party would not allow the passage of the triple talaq Bill in its present form in the Rajya Sabha. The party would join hands with those parties which it can ally with to defeat the Bill in its present form, he told reporters here. The Lok Sabha had on Thursday passed the Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2018. It is expected to be considered by the Rajya Sabha next week.
The Alappuzha MP said there is no confusion either in the UPA or UDF (the Congress-led coalition in Kerala) over the Bill. “The Opposition parties are against the passing of the Bill in its present form. When the Bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha, the 10 Opposition parties had objected to it and wanted that the Bill be left to the perusal of the standing committee. But the government did not heed the Opposition’s demand. Even AIADMK, which had supported the NDA on several issues, and TMC, have come out against the Bill,’’ he said.
