"The government is committed to passing important Bills such as Triple Talaq Bill and the National Commission for Backward Classes Bill and cooperation is expected from all parties on such issues of national importance", said Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananth Kumar at the conclusion of the winter session.

Minister of State (MoS) for Prime Minister's Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh on Sunday blamed the Congress Party of sabotaging the Triple Talaq Bill.

On the possibility of bringing in an ordinance till the Bill gets cleared, Kumar said, "The dates for the Budget Session have already been announced".

However, on Saturday, Union Minister of Law and Justice Ravi Shankar Prasad said the government was willing to "consider any reasonable and constructive suggestions from the Congress party or any other party" but the suggestion can not be one that is "designed to kill the soul of the Bill". "If it is passed in the present form because of the rigid and undemocratic stand adopted by the Narendra Modi government and becomes law, it will do more harm to Muslim women and double the atrocities faced by them", she said in a statement here. "There is anger among people on this issue". He clarified the Congress was not against the spirit of the bill, but some provisions such as criminalising talaq-e-biddat, which it felt were "anti-women". He said they were against the empowerment of Muslim women in India. "This is due to the government's delay in holding the Winter Session", he said.

She noted that a auto accident both were involved in two years ago provided deteriorated health in the aftermath. Jerry first made his mark in stand-up comedy, which he started to perform while still in high school.

The Bill was cleared by the Lok Sabha through a voice vote but could not be passed in the Upper House due to a deadlock over the Opposition's demand seeking its reference to a Select Committee for close scrutiny. "We have convened a meeting of the Women's League on January 12 at Thrissinapalli to chalk out protest programmes against the bill", Noorbina said adding that a delegation of Women's League leaders will also meet Congress president Rahul Gandhi and other leaders in New Delhi soon to discuss the matter.

Referring to the earlier decisions like demonetisation and GST, Mayawati said that the Modi government has the habit of working in an arbitrary manner and stressed that the new measures adopted by them have proved to be very problematic for countrymen.

He alleged that the ruling side does not want the Bill to go to a select committee, even when the BJP has a two-third majority in the Parliament.

"They (BJP) are squarely responsible for this impasse in Rajya Sabha. For the first time, Union ministers and (ruling party) MPs were seen standing in the Rajya Sabha and stalling Parliament", he told reporters.
