Bhubaneswar, August 1 (LocalWire): The Triple Talaq Billthat was passed in the Lok Sabha had its reverberation in the state Assembly today with the Opposition Congress and BJP locked in a tug-of-war.
Congress members led by Tara Prasad Bahinipati took strong exception to Deputy Opposition leader, Bishnu Charan Sethi’s remark and rushed towards the Speaker’s podium to strike off of Sethi’s statement from the Assembly’s proceedings.
Sethi had assailed the Congress party opposing the Bill in the Lok Sabha.
‘It is not clear why the Congress opposed the Bill.
The Muslim majority countries find triple talaq as Draconian and uncivilized.
The parties including Congress that opposed the Bill are doing so for votes,’ Sethy said in the Assembly.
