राज्यसभेत काय घडले ?

व्हिडिओ नीट बघा व ऐका, खोट्या प्रचाराला बळी पडू नका.
उदयनराजेंच्या 'जय भवानी - जय शिवाजी' घोषणेनंतर
काँग्रेस नेते गुलाब नबी आझाद आणि मल्लिकार्जुन खर्गे यांनी "This is not allowed" (00:13 - 00:16) असा आक्षेप घेतल्यानंतर सभापतींनी त्यांच्याकडे बघून (१/१)
त्यांना उद्देशून दिलेली प्रतिक्रिया आहे - (00:16 - 00:26)

"It's not a house it's my chamber"
(हे संसदेचे सत्र नसून आपण फक्त शपथविधी साठी एकत्र आलो आहोत, इकडे House म्हणजे संसदेचे सत्र, घर नाही!)
"He's a new member"
(ते नवीन सदस्य आहेत)
"And it is not going on record also"
(आणि बाकीचे शब्द अभिलेखात जात नाही)
"It will be only oath (on record)"
(फक्त छापील शपथ अभिलेखात नोंदली जाईल)

आणि या सगळ्याने confuse झालेल्या उदयनराजेंना उद्देशून त्यांच्याकडे बघून सभापती म्हणाले - (00:28 - 00:33)

On this #AprilFoolsDay, recounting some instances from #Parliament which had us fooled in the last one year:

1. Delaying discussing #FinanceBill for almost a week and then passing it without discussion in #LokSabha, because #Parliament had to be shut due to #COVID outbreak
2. On last day of curtailed #BdgetSession in #RajyaSabha, 7 Money Bills were returned in 5 hours, with 2 Appropriation Bills and all 154 clauses and 5 schedules of Finance Bill put to vote together without any discussion and cleared in 5 minutes

3. Sending #DataProtection Bill to specially constituted Joint Parliament Committee headed by a BJP MP instead of already existing Standing Committee headed by an Opposition MP

@SalmanSoz @aniljothomas @narendramodi It's the inevitability of the Algebra of exponential growth.

At any given growth rate the absolute increase in any fixed period (say a 5 year period) will be greater than in the previous period).

The Prime Minister must not take credit for algebra.

In a chart.
@SalmanSoz @aniljothomas @narendramodi For example if you start at GDP = 0.2Trillion (I.e, 200 billion); AND grow steadily at say 8%, - giving a doubling time of 9 years. If this is sustained you reach
1 .2 Trn in 27 years
2.4 trillion in the next 9 years
4.8 trillion in the next 9 years.
@SalmanSoz @aniljothomas @narendramodi That means The absolute arithmetical increase in GDP was
1 Trn in first 27 years
1.2 in next 9 years
2.4 in next 9 years.
Only an ignoramus in simple school algebra, or a fraud, or both would claim that the performance was best in the final 9-year period. It was 8% throughout.

In #Parliament, Home Minister asserted that ‘lakhs and crores’ of people will benefit from #CAA2019

We did #FactCheck and dug out some data from Questions answered in #RajyaSabha

What we found is interesting and revealing


As recently as on 8th August 2018, Ministry of Home Affairs claimed in #RajyaSabha that data on people from minority communities coming to India on ground of religious persecution from different provinces of Pakistan is not centrally maintained

Interestingly, MHA did say that issue of persecution was taken up with Govt of Pakistan and Bangladesh diplomatically.

What Pakistan and Bangladesh said can be seen in pictures below, which was reproduced in atleast 3 responses, all in 2014.

🔴🔴🔴Long Thread 🔴🔴🔴

Topic: The #NRC v #CAB Debate

Given the umpteen opinions and point of views surrounding NRC and CAB, I wanted to write a simple and neutral point of view on these 2 bills, covering pros & cons of the same.

#CABBill #NRC #RajyaSabha #LokSabha #AmitShah
Before I start. If any of you notice glaring errors or misjudgement in my thread, I'm more than happy to hear you. But let's keep the thread / replies civil.

#CABBill #NRC #RajyaSabha #LokSabha #AmitShah
Firstly, let's see what each bill stands for.

NRC - Now only limited to Assam focuses on deciding the citizenship of those living in #Assam by judging their residentship/presence (or that of their ancestors) before March 24, 1971.

Rajya Sabha Chairman waives rules of advance notice for speaking on the issue of J&K Reservation Bill. He says the bill and the situation in Kashmir will be discussed together.

Amit Shah: "I am ready to discuss the situation in Kashmir and answer questions of every member that are raised."

Chairman clarifies that members can give amendments till 12.30 today.

#KillAadhaarAmendmentBill in #RajyaSabha
5 Reasons you shouldn’t allow Passage of the AADHAAR and Other Laws (Amendment Bill)

@derekobrienmp to Consider these Critical Points
1. The Aadhaar Act undermined the Rajya Sabha and was passed as a Money Bill. Justice Chandrachud in his judgement in WP 494 of 212 clearly declares the passage of the Aadhaar Act as a FRAUD ON THE CONSTITUTION. Passing an Amendment to a Fraudulent Act is furthering the FRAUD
2. The Aadhaar Act has undermined democratic processes, worse than Cambridge Analytica – By enabling Private Parties in the ecosystem of Aadhaar to MANIPULATE VOTERS BY TARGETING SUBSIDIES – Benefits & Services rather than ensuring – NO ONE IS EXCLUDED

The Transgender Bill fails to plug the gap in the judicial protection of transgender persons who are victims of sexual assault or rape - thereby legally sanctioning discriminatory behavior and denying equal protection in law. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill also fails to recognize the need for appropriate infrastructure such as gender-neutral/gender inclusive toilets for transgender persons who face severe difficulties while accessing gender-segregated spaces. #StopTransBill2018
The Bill does not provide for reservations – disregarding the directions of the Supreme Court in NALSA to "extend all kinds of reservation in cases of admission in educational institutions and for public appointments.” #StopTransBill2018
