Liberals in India are over the moon because of the Congress' victory in the #KarnatakaElectionResults2023

But public memory is short.

In November 2018, six months before the general elections of 2019, the #BJP lost to the Congress in three major states: #MadhyaPradesh, #Chattisgarh, and #Rajasthan.

Yet, in the 2019 Parliamentary elections, the BJP came back to power with a bigger majority than in 2014.

The BJP got 303 seats on their own in the 2019 #LokSabha elections, compared to 282 in 2014 - and the Congress had only 52 seats, a gain of a mere 8 seats compared to 2014.

And the Congress has won only one major state this time.

In the last week, not only 27 Opposition MPs have been suspended (4 in #LokSabha, 23 in #RajyaSabha), but as many as 97 Questions asked by these MPs have been DELETED & Govt has avoided answering these Qs!
There is NO provision in RULES to permit such deletion of Qs!

See our earlier #Thread-
In the current #MonsoonSession, following is the tally of Qs 'DELETED'. Also, see pics of some Deleted Qs.
- 11 Qs asked by 4 suspended Opposition MPs in #LokSabha

The Criminal Procedure (Identification) Bill, 2022, prima facie, fails to satisfy the tests laid down by the Supreme Court in the landmark decision in K.S. Puttaswamy (2017).
#CriminalProcedureIdentificationBill2022 #LokSabha #surveillance #privacymatters
The collection and processing of sensitive personal data such as biometric & biological samples for the purposes of identification do not, satisfy the test of proportionality.
The absence of any opportunity of hearing for persons refusing to allow their measurements to be taken highlights the failure to meet the State’s aim for promoting justice, as provided under Article 39A of the Constitution.
