Parliament in a soup?

Wednesday, March 07, 2018

The Parliament will witness problems in the Budget Session by the Opposition led Congress Party, which is expected to corner the Narendra Modi government on contentious issues like the Punjab National Bank scam and the ongoing tussle between Prasar Bharati and the Information and Broadcasting ministry. The bill to target fugitive economic offenders was approved by the Union Cabinet following the escape of diamond merchant Nirav Modi, and other accused in the over Rs.12,700 crore PNB scam. The Congress is also expected to raise the issue of its leaders being targeted by the CBI or other enforcement agencies. The Opposition, led by the Congress, has been targeting the I&B ministry over its refusal to release funds to the Prasar Bharati for the salaries of its employees. The ministry’s decision to transfer a large number of Indian Information Service officers is also expected to be raised by the Opposition during the session. With this, the Parliament will possibly be washed out and the Modi government will fail to conduct the business.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will find work to be very stressful today. However, it will not prevent you from taking shots at your opponents. You are thoughtful, but can be cunning too. People would have gauged it by now. Ganesha advises you to go ahead nevertheless.
