As the Winter Session of Parliament advances into its fourth day, significant legislative proposals and committee reports are set to take center stage. Home Minister Amit Shah is poised to move crucial bills, marking a pivotal phase in the parliamentary proceedings.

Key Bills on the Agenda:

  1. Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023: This bill seeks to amend the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation Act, 2004, aiming to address pertinent issues related to reservations in the region.
  2. Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2023: Providing amendments to the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, this bill is part of the ongoing efforts to streamline administrative processes in the region.

Both bills were successfully passed in the Lok Sabha on the preceding day, leading to intense debates and discussions.

Committee Reports and Recommendations:

  1. Reports by Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs: BJP MPs Anil Jain and Neeraj Shekhar are slated to present the 249th and 250th reports, emphasizing critical insights and recommendations related to home affairs.
  2. Statement of the Committee on the Welfare of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (2023-24): BJP MP Chhedi Paswan will lay the statements in the Rajya Sabha, reflecting the committee’s findings and suggestions.

Recap of Day 3: Wednesday witnessed the Lok Sabha approving the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023, and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2023. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, during the debate, attributed Article 370 as the root cause of terrorism, sparking intense exchanges. Shah’s reference to former PM Jawaharlal Nehru’s decisions resulted in an Opposition walkout.

“I am glad that throughout the whole discussion and debate over the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill 2023, no member opposed the ‘tattva’ (substance) of the Bill,” remarked Amit Shah. The day also saw the tabling of a parliamentary panel report recommending increased representation of SC and ST communities in central public sector banks, aiming at a more inclusive and diverse governance structure.

As Day 4 unfolds, the Parliament anticipates further deliberations, discussions, and legislative actions that will shape the course of the ongoing Winter Session.
