3 Days, 3 Bills, Is It Pizza Delivery?” Derek O’Brien slams Government

Derek O Brien, PM Modi

New Delhi, July 31: The Opposition including Trinamool Congress lawmaker Derek O’Brien slammed the government over the “hurried” passage of bills without scrutinizing in the ongoing parliament session.

“Parliament is supposed to scrutinize Bills. This chart explains the bulldozing this Session. Are we delivering pizzas or passing legislation?” he tweeted on Wednesday.

He tweeted a chart purportedly showing the contrast in the number of bills that were scrutinized when the Congress-led alliance was in power. He claimed that in the present Lok Sabha, only one out of the 18 bills passed were scrutinised, bringing the number down to 5 per cent.




The attack comes a day after the contentious bill to ban ‘Triple Talaq’ sailed through the opposition-dominated Rajya Sabha.

Leader of Opposition, Ghulam Nabi Azad said, ” My submission is on one side you seek list from opposition – Bills to be sent to Select Committee, you don’t come back to us, and you get it passed. You tell your people to be present&we remain under illusion that Bill is going to Select Committee. This is not done.”

” The Bill y’day (Muslim Women Protection of Rights on Marriage Bill, 2019)&Bill listed no.2 today (Unlawful Activities Prevention Amendment Bill) were listed to go to Select Committee. Y’day’s Bill was listed at night&we were given to understand they haven’t considered it,”ANI added.

Pregnancy Death

Jaipur, April 4 : A woman experiencing labour pain was allegedly refused admission into a government hospital by its staff citing her religion in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur district.

The pregnant woman delivered the infant inside an ambulance, after leaving the hospital, but the child could not survive.

Irfan Khan, the husband, said, “My wife was referred from Sikri to the Janana hospital in the district headquarter, however doctors here asked us to go to Jaipur as we are Muslim. While on our way to Jaipur, my wife delivered the child but the baby passed away for which the administration is responsible.”

However, Dr Rupendra Jha, Principal, Janana hospital, Bharatpur, said, “This woman who came for delivery was critical and hence was referred to Jaipur. We shall further look into the matter.

Meanwhile, Vishvendra Singh, Rajasthan Tourism Minister, criticised the doctor’s act and tweeted, “Pregnant Muslim Woman was refused medical attention at the Zenana Hospital in #Bharatpur & was told to go to Jaipur given her religion. Local Bharatpur MLA is State Health Minister & this is the condition of the hospital in Bharatpur City. Shameful.”

He further tweeted, “The #Jamaat was/is a national disaster and hazard. But innocent Muslims suffering like this – is simply put – painful for us to see. The State Minister of Health is from Bharatpur – but still this happened.”

Meanwhile, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi also condemned the incident in a tweet, saying, “The staff must be tried & punished as common criminals & should receive exemplary punishmentA @ashokgehlot1. They are responsible for the death of an innocent woman. Should we now stop seeking healthcare? Anti-Muslim hate reaches new heights every day & is costing us our lives.”

Singh, however, said that action will be taken against the accused doctor in the matter.
