The government has listed total four bills for discussion and voting in the Lok Sabha on Friday, two of these bills are related to the ordinances already in force.
One of the bills is meant to replace the ordinance to ban the practice of instant divorce prevalent among Muslims in India and the second one is related to the ordinance brought on 26 September this year to appoint a board of governors to manage the affairs of now defunct medical council of India.
However, the bill to ban Triple Talaq (instant divorce) is not expected to see a smooth sailing in the Lok Sabha as it is expected to see stiff opposition from the Congress party.
