Parliament Winter Session LIVE Updates: Triple Talaq Bill To Be Tabled In Rajya Sabha Tomorrow

Parliament Winter Session: Triple Talaq bill will be tabled at the Rajya Sabha today.

New Delhi:  After the triple talaq bill was tabled and passed in the Lok Sabha last Thursday, the bill, which is being considered to be 'historic' by many, will be tabled in the Rajya Sabha today. On Friday, around 98 private members' bills were introduced in the Rajya Sabha, including one to constitute a board for protection and control of stray cows. The bill was introduced by the BJP's Kunwar Pushpendra Singh Chandel. Another bill to establish two time zones in India for systematic and inclusive administration in the country was introduced by Congress member Gaurav Gogoi. However, today's primary focus will be on the triple talaq bill which seeks to criminalise triple talaq and proposes a three-year jail term for a Muslim man who divorces his wife by uttering the word "talaq" thrice.

Here are the highlights of the winter session of parliament:
