Parliament Live: Lok Sabha agrees to table Citizenship Amendment Bill

It is going to be an action-packed day of the Winter Session of Parliament as the highly contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill -- CAB -- is all set to be tabled in the Lok Sabha for passage today. Union Home Minister Amit Shah will introduce in the Lok Sabha the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill that seeks to grant Indian citizenship to non-Muslim refugees from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan escaping religious persecution there. The bill is likely to face strong opposition in Parliament as opposition parties are protesting against many clauses of the CAB. Congress is likely to lead the protest opposing the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill in Parliament as the party believes it is against the country's Constitution and its secular ethos. Meanwhile, some other bills such as The Constitution (126th Amendment) Bill, 2019, The Anti-Maritime Piracy Bill, 2019, The Arms (Amendment) Bill, 2019, will also be tabled in the Lok Sabha today. In Rajya Sabha, today, The Recycling of Ships Bill, 2019, will be tabled for consideration and passing. Stay with IndiaToday.in for live updates on Winter Session of Parliament.
