ECI tells #KeralaHighCourt that on the eve of notifying #RajyaSabha elections for 3 vacant seats for members from Kerala retiring on April 21, Union Law & Justice Ministry had raised a question of propriety that popular will not be reflected if RS polls are held on April 12
Union Law & Justice Ministry had requested ECI to revisit the decision to conduct #RajyaSabha polls on April 12 since the Kerala Legislative Assembly elections were on April 6, #KeralaHighCourt told by Election Commission via a statement.
Since this issue of propriety was raised, the ECI kept the initiation notification in abeyance and sought legal opinion from a senior advocate, Advocate Deepu Lal Mohan submits on behalf of ECI

Election Commission will notify the Rajya Sabha elections for 3 vacancies from Kerala (that will arise later this month on the retirement of the MPs) prior to the expiry of the term of these 3 MPs i.e. before April 21, 2021, #KeralaHighCourt told.

@ECISVEEP
Adv Deepu Lal Mohan (for EC) says that the reason why HC was moved was because the earlier notification was kept in abeyance.

A revised election schedule will be issued. At this moment, it cannot be speculated when it will be scheduled, but it will be before April 21, he adds
Senior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan, for the petitioner, argues that the Election Commission must disclose why the initial date for the Rajya Sabha elections was reconsidered in the first place and what reference of the Law Ministry was involved.

The Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021 was tabled and discussed in Rajya Sabha today.

#RajyaSabha

@DrAMSinghvi @CMODelhi @AamAadmiParty @LtGovDelhi
Dr. Abhishek Manu Singhvi: The bill is not about AAP, Congress or West Bengal. It's about the fundamentals of federalism.

#RajyaSabha @DrAMSinghvi
Singhvi: Federalism is word which you'll not find it anywhere in the Constitution, but it's a part of the basic structure.

"That means if a constitutional amendment is passed in this house saying there's no federalism, then that amendment can be struck down as unconstitutional."

@Gen_VKSingh Dear Honorable Minister @Gen_VKSingh Ji
Here is my thread in-line with your tweets🙏
as an #AndolanJeevi #IStandWithFarmers on #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP Guarantee
@Gen_VKSingh Now, it is clear that the Govt is adamant on #suspended #farmlaws and is misusing even #parliament to tell Lies on #MSP
refusing MSP Guarantee act to prevent below MSP purchase by anyone in India.
We Step back and understand the true ramifications of this situation for #Annadata
@Gen_VKSingh When do #Sellibrities become active to tweet on agriculture subject? When they get hints or advice, being a celebrity is a sensitive expectation from the powers and they are close to the heart of every Indian. #AndolanJeevi #FarmersCallPMforDebate on suspended #farmlaws and #MSP

The use of regional languages in Rajya Sabha has increased over five times between 2018-20 compared to the 14-year period between 2004 and 2017, said the Upper house on January 16.
Sanskrit was the fifth most used language in the Rajya Sabha proceedings in 2019-20 after Hindi, Telugu, Urdu and Tamil in the same order.
“With 12 interventions (made) in Sanskrit, all during 2019-20, it has emerged as the fifth widely used (language) in the Rajya Sabha among the 22 scheduled languages, coming after Hindi, Telugu, Urdu and Tamil,” reported the Hindustan Times.

An activist has submitted an RTI application about 'abrupt interruption' in the audio feed of the RS Proceeding on RSTV during consideration of Farmers’ Bills.
#RajyaSabha

@HardeepSPuri @rajyasabhatv @SaketGokhale
CPWD, which maintains the facility, clarifies that the feed was disrupted between 13:05 Hrs to 13:35 Hrs on 20 Sept, 2020 due to the damages caused to the microphones (mics) at the Chairman’s seat by some of the Hon'ble MPs.
As directed by the chair, no other MIC was ON at that very time except that of Hon'ble Chairman. So when these MICS were broken, there was no audio output from the system to RSTV. It took nearly half an hour to restore this after following necessary protocols.

Underlines the Bipartisan nature of #US strategic acquisitions .The Presidential Election has nil effect on acquisition plans or #Defence preparedness. In contrast #India loses 1-2yrs each time a govt changes . This fallacy must be corrected if we are to grow as a global power.
This can be easily corrected by
1) A national #Defence council with one representative from each state govt, CDS & the CAG that can vote on acquisitions in election years.
2) A fixed minimum allocation of 1.5% of GDP for CAPEX that must be legally mandated for all govts .
The thing is in India the Lok Sabha elections put all LS MP seats into elections . That said, your idea could work with the RS MPs taking over under the aegis of the @rashtrapatibhvn I guess!

Problem is the blind polarisation among the upper-crust - who refuse to see anything good in #Modi. Many had forwarded to me the clip of an MP criticising #PMCaresFund hailing her as the new start in parliamentarian. Same people not interested in #NirmalaSitharaman’s rebuttal.
2/n Similarly, not a word of condemnation for the pandemonium caused in #RajyaSabha (despite televised footage) by the opposition but all sympathies with suspended MPs protesting in the laws of Parliament House and lamenting the “death of democracy”. 3/n
3/n Same set of businessmen and industrialists who have been crying hoarse about labour reforms suddenly start talking like Trade Union leaders. Would love to see their reaction if the government withdraws the amendments in #LabourCodes 4/n
