Political parties oppose SC verdict on disqualifying convicted MPs


New Delhi: All political parties on Thursday opposed the Supreme Court's verdict on disqualifying convicted MPs. They also opposed the court's ruling that those behind bars can't contest elections. The parties voiced their dissent in an all-party meeting which took place just a few days before the monsoon session of Parliament, which will commence on August 5.
The apex court had ruled that any person in the custody of police will be temporarily barred from contesting elections. The court had also ruled that a person can't contest elections if he or she is in judicial or police custody. This ban shall be in place only as long as the person is behind bars.
The BJP also hit out at the government as leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj said, "The government wants 64 items in a small session of 16 sittings. Its unrealistic." Her counterpart in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley also voiced his concern on the issue and said, "Only 12 effective days with 64 legislations is unrealistic."

Two days after the Congress Working Committee endorsed the creation of separate state of Telangana, the BJP said it will support the bill on Telangna. " Bill on Telangana should be brought in this session itself. We are in favour of passing the Telangana bill," said Sushma.
The Opposition also raised a number of issues to be discussed in the session and that includes Uttarakhand tragedy, bad economy, falling rupee, CBI and IB issue. The party want the government to consider their concerns on Land Bill and Food Security Bill. "Land and Food Security Bills should be brought with the amendments we have suggested," Sushma said.
Meanwhile, Jaitley also asked the government to have a constructive attitude towards the issues raised by them.
