Congress' 'poor' floor management is blessing for BJP
As is known, the NDA government has successfully got the Triple Talaq Bill passed in Rajya Sabha, where it has no majority. In the wake of the passage of the "historic Bill", several political commentators are saying that the Congress party couldn't stall the Bill it has vehemently opposed.
Says Smita Prakash, "No floor management by Congress party in the Rajya Sabha, nor any movement by the party to garner support to defeat Triple Talaq bill in Rajya Sabha. TT will not go to a select committee. The NDA in Rajya Sabha will now not encounter significant resistance as they push bills through."
It has to be seen if what happened in RS yesterday will change the way the different parties look at Parliamentary numbers and floor management. For now, the failure of the Congress to "rise to the occasion" has become BJP's big blessing.
