NEW DELHI: Senior ministers met here on Friday to strategise for the upcoming Monsoon session of the parliament that is likely to be full of fireworks as the Congress has threatened to disrupt the proceedings on the issue of former IPL czar  Lalit Modi issue. The Congress has been demanding the resignation of minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan CM Vasundhra Raje as the opposition party alleged that they has extended help to Lalit Modi.

Ministers like Arun Jaitley,  Birender Singh met at Home Minister Rajnath  Singh’s residence.  Also present were BJP chief Amit Shah, Lok Sabha MP SS Ahluwalia, and Nripendra Misra, principal secretary to the PM.  Sources said the key legislations to be brought before the parliament were discussed and how to counter the opposition’s charge.   The monsoon session would have two key legislations, GST Bill and Land Bill, be taken up for discussion and passing. However, the opposition and some of the NDA allies are not keen to allow the contentious land bill, which is currently being studied by the Ahluwalia led joint committee of the both the houses of the parliament.  

Apart from GST and amendments to the land acquisition bill, government is hoping to take up National Waterways Bill, Factories (Amendment) bill, Motor Vehicle (Amendment) Bill, Railways (Amendment) Bill, Negotiable Instruments (Amendment) Bill, Whistle Blowers Protection (Amendment) Bill and Real Estate Regulation and Development Bill during the current session.

Sources confirmed that the government has also prepared a detailed note regarding bills on which reports were presented by standing committees.  The note includes bills like Drugs and Cosmetics amendment bill, Nalanda University amendment bill etc. And, bills which have been passed by one house and pending in other will also be given priority.
