This is what is happening AFAIK:

- A revised list was added and the J&K reorganization Bill was added to it.
- The bill was NOT circulated, is NOT available to the public, and has been introduced.
- A separate order has been given by President to dismiss 370.
In Rajya Sabha:

- Amit Shah gave a statement about the president's order and introduced the Reorganization Bill.

- Chairman has allowed MPs to file amendments to it ONLY till 12.30. (they've to read it AND understand it in an hour.)

#SansadWatch
- Chairman wants to allow discussions only on the J&K reservation bill, which was circulated earlier.

#SansadWatch

(Yes it's confusing. I know. But as far as I can tell, that's what's happening.)

#SansadWatch
.@derekobrienmp raised point of order.

He objects to bill being introduced and proposed for passing without circulating it. No amendments were possible since there was a sudden rush.

Chairman clarifies that members can give amendments till 12.30 today.

ALERT!
Supplementary List of Business in Lok Sabha is out.

Two bills listed for introduction, including the Constitutional Amendment Bill for 10% Quota. What's more, it is also listed for consideration and passing TODAY!
#SansadWatch
They seem to be in the mood to bulldoze this bill through. It's a super important Constitutional Amendment, mind you.

No time will be given to MPs for filing amendments. The Bill was circulated TODAY! Parliamentary practice is being thrown out the window.
#SansadWatch
In his interview to @smitaprakash, PM Modi had said that there should be deep discussions in Parliament on every aspect. But when his Government introduces and pushes through bills at such short notice, what they heck is he even talking about?

Whattay farce.

Lok Sabha resumes with hearty Happy New Year cheers.

Slowly and steadily they get replaced by random JUSTICE JUSTICE chants.
#SansadWatch
Can't quite figure out which party is screaming in Lok Sabha. INC MPs are asking supplementary questions & you can see their MPs sitting quietly in the background.
House adjourned to meet at 12 pm.

Aadhaar Amendment Bill to be introduced in Lok Sabha today. This will probably be cleared and certified as a money bill.

Because, you know, who gives a damn.
#SansadWatch
Reports indicate this Bill circumvents the SC Judgment. It will again allow private companies to use and exploit Aadhaar.
#SansadWatch

Thread. 👇
This bill has not been introduced yet. A draft should be available to the public but... well, it isn't. After introduction today, sufficient time needs to be given to MPs for filing amendments.

If it is bulldozed through shamelessly, it's fraud.
Pure and simple.

Parliament might be adjourned (both houses) today on Day 1 because of the death of Ananth Kumar. No vital bill has been listed in either house.

Adjournment was expected because of the #results2018 anyway.
#SansadWatch
(On a personal note: Won't be able to do #SansadWatch streams this session till January. Not in Dilli-land rn. Will try to do the cover week though!)

Met so many people who follow #SansadWatch during the @themediarumble.

Realised that this experiment has the potential to become a platform for non-policy background folk who are interested in the field to just gain a further understanding of public policy! What fun!
And in all seriousness I want to thank these enthu cutlet bunch of people (much like me) for being so upfront with feedback and give suggestions about what direction #SansadWatch should take.

Please keep the feedback coming! We have a lot of work to do!
Probably the best way forward is to turn this into a sort of an open-source project and hand it over the the community. The idea would be to provide a platform for policy enthusiasts to just mess around with everything Parliament.

Sort of a fun place to discuss Parliament!

#RSQuestionsMissing
What could be the reason when 2 Parliamentary Questions asked in #RajyaSabha on ‘Deposit of #DemonetisedNotes in Cooperative Banks’ go missing from Rajya Sabha website?
Unstarred Q.668 and Q.714, both asked on 24/07/2018 cannot be found on Rajya Sabha website.
#RSQuestionsMissing
Q.668 asked details of PSBs, District Coop Banks where highest amt of #DemonetisedNotes were deposited along with amt deposited
It also specifically asked about Ahmedabad District Coop Bank & money deposited there & any Govt inquiry into alleged huge deposits.
#RSQuestionsMissing
Q.714 asked state-wise details of amt deposited in Coop societies, District Coop Banks, Urban Banks, State Coop Banks after demonetization till 31st March 2017. It also asked whether these societies and banks were allowed to change demonetized currency.
