Keen to push the legislative agenda, government has listed key bills like GST in Parliament next week but it is unlikely to be an easy affair at least in Rajya Sabha as BSP and Congress intend to continue their agitation against minister V K Singh for his 'dog' remark.
BSP and Congress, which disrupted the Upper House for the last two days, have vowed to persist with their demand for Singh's ouster from the Council of Ministers as well as Parliament for his 'dog' analogy after two Dalit children were burnt alive in Haryana few months back.
Congress' Rajya Sabha member today said his party's stand on the issue remains the same and it will protest in the House even on Monday if Singh comes there.
"If V K Singh comes to the House, we will protest against it. Our demand is take action against Singh for his remarks," Tiwari said. Tiwari was in the forefront among Congress leaders, who protested in Rajya Sabha against Singh's remarks and trooped into the well along with BSP members.
On its party, government has listed GST along with six other bills in Rajya Sabha for next week. Six bills have been listed in the Lok Sabha. The government's main focus will be on the passage of the key GST Bill, officially known as The Constitution (122nd Amendment) Bill, 2014.
The Centre plans to roll out the Goods and Services Tax (GST) from April next year. The bill has been passed by Lok Sabha but got stuck in Rajya Sabha. After its passage in Lok Sabha, the bill was sent to a Select Committee of Rajya Sabha on Opposition's demand.
The panel has given its report. Other important bills include the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013, which was discussed in Rajya Sabha on Friday. The Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of Rajya Sabha has allotted a time of four hours for the GST Bill and two hours for the Real Estate Bill.
