BJP issues whip to Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha MPs asking them to be present on Tuesday for discussion of ‘very important legislative work’

New Delhi: The BJP has issued a whip asking its members of parliament to be present in their respective Houses on Tuesday when Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is expected to reply to discussions on the Union Budget in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha.

Sitharaman is likely to speak in Lok Sabha first and then in Rajya Sabha. Discussions on the Union budget, which was presented on 1 February, has been going on for the last few days in Parliament.

The Direct Tax Vivad se Vishwas Bill will be discussed in the Lok Sabha. Sitharaman had earlier on 5 February introduced the bill which provides for a mechanism for resolution of pending tax disputes in the lower house.

While opposition members have attacked the government over economic slowdown and "record-high" unemployment, treasury benches have lauded the Centre for various initiatives in the budget.

Since the beginning of the the Budget Session, the Parliament has seen protests by Opposition against various issues, including the Citizenship Amendment Act and National Register of Citizens and the police atrocities on those protesting against this law. There has also been an uproar over BJP leader Anantkumar Hegde's remark about Mahatma Gandhi's freedom struggle.

The House had been discussing a Motion of Thanks to the President's Address. In his address to a joint sitting of the Parliament, President Ram Nath Kovind had hailed the government for introducing the amendments to the Citizenship Act. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had addressed the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on 7 February.
