The Lok Sabha has been adjourned until January 2. Earlier, Lok Sabha had passed the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Bill, 2017. Prior to this, the House witnessed a heated debate over last night’s mishap at the Kamala Mills in Mumbai which took toll of at least 14. Shiv Sena MP Arvind Sawant in Lok Sabha has also demanded a judicial inquiry in the Kamala Mills Fire incident. Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha adjourned till 11 AM on 2nd January 2018. Yesterday, defeating all amendments, the Lok Sabha on Thursday passed the triple talaq bill and it will now be presented in the Rajya Sabha. Speaking on behalf of the government, MoS MJ Akbar called into question the credibility of All India Muslim Personal Law Board for opposing the move. He asked ‘who made them community representatives?’ The Congress has sought the bill to be sent to the Standing Committee, while few other opposition parties like the AIMIM and Biju Janata Dal have called the legislation an “injustice to Muslim women”.
