Budget 2016: Narendra Modi hopes for constructive debate in Parliament

The crucial Budget session of Parliament is set to begin on Tuesday on a stormy note as Jawaharlal Nehru University row and Dalit scholar Rohith Vemula's suicide case will rock the House. Three hitherto unknown University students – Rohith Vemula, Kanhaiya Kumar and Umar Khalid are expected to bring Parliament to a halt when the lawmakers meet to discuss the annual Budget and other things.


After a complete washout of the Monsoon and Winter session, the opposition is up in arms to corner the government in Parliament. The Narendra Modi government is trying hard to bargain with the opposition to get important Goods and Service Tax Bill and Real Estate Bill passed in the session.
