11 bills in four days 3

December 21 2014

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs in Modi government, Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, is having to face greater challenges in the Rajya Sabha than the Lok Sabha. That is because there are several more Congress members in the Upper House. Several Congress biggies, as well as political personalities such as Sharad Yadav, Mayawati, Sitaram Yechury and others tend to congregate here. In such a scenario, the government is not finding it easy to run the Upper House. While the Opposition parties seek an explanation or comment from the prime minister for every small and big thing, Naqvi and the BJP’s biggest challenge is to ensure that Modi’s image and reputation is unscathed. So, Naqvi was seen cashing in on his personal relations with opposition bench in the Rajya Sabha but if we look closely, we see that work and sessions kept getting disrupted due to ruckus created by the Opposition parties. But Naqvi deserves credit where it’s due – in just four days, he managed to pass 11 significant Bills from the Rajya Sabha.
