AgenciesTuesday is the last day of the Budget session before it heads for a break.
Bharatiya Janata Party has issued a whip for its members in Rajya Sabha today, triggering intense speculations among the Oppositon.
The whip comes on the day when all eyes are set on the counting of Delhi election votes.
While no one second guessing the motive behind the whip, news wire agency IANS has speculated that the Modi govt might introduce the controversial Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in the Upper House today, hence the whip.
The Uniform Civil Code (UCC) seeks to scrap the separate civil laws applicable for minorities in religious and cultural affairs.
There is a lot of buzz on social media that is similar to the abrogation of Article 370, this time the UCC may be taken up as an awe and shock measure.
The Uniform Civil Code (UCC), which would scrap the separate civil laws applicable for minorities in religious and cultural affairs, could be implemented by rushing a legislation in both Houses of the Parliament, the Twitterati pointed out. The basis of their claim was a viral image which showed that a legislation on UCC is listed for introduction in the Upper House.
The BJP has issued a three-line whip to all its MPs of Rajya Sabha asking them to be present in the House on Tuesday and support the stand of the government.
Tuesday is the last day of the Budget session before it heads for a break.
