The BJP has asked MPs to be present to support the government’s stance in the three-line whip. In this case, speculation is being made on whether the MPs are asked to appear for voting on a bill or to extend support to Nirmala Sitharaman’s response to the budget. Even before the start of this budget session, the government has stated that its goal is to pass 45 bills. But on the last day of the first phase, on February 11, no one is willing to speak openly on what bill the government will introduce.
Sitharaman will speak on the central budget
On the last day of the budget session, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is expected to respond to discussions in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on the central budget. Sitharaman is expected to speak in the Lok Sabha first and then in the Rajya Sabha. The Union Budget, introduced on February 1, has been under discussion in Parliament for the past few days. While opposition members have called on the government to attack the “record level” of economic sluggishness and unemployment, members of the ruling party have praised the Center for various initiatives in the budget.
