    ModiAs the Budget session of Parliament resumes on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that he looks forward to a productive session, filled with constructive debates on several issues.

    “Parliament session begins today. I look forward to a productive session, filled with constructive debates on several issues,” he tweeted on Monday.

    The land bill issue is expected to generate much heat in Lok Sabha with the government deciding to table the new land ordinance on the very first day of the second half of Budget session.

    According to the schedule of business, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy will lay on the table a copy of the Right to Fair Compensation and Transparency in Land Acquisition, Rehabilitation and Resettlement (Amendment) Ordinance, promulgated by the President on 3rd April under Article 123(2)(a) of Constitution.

    External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will also make a statement regarding the ‘Recent Developments in the Republic of Yemen and efforts made for safe evacuation of Indian nationals from there’.

    The Budget session will conclude on 8th May. The Rajya Sabha is having a new session from 23rd April that will end on 13th May.

    With Parliament set to witness a stormy session over a host of issues, including the land bill, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu asked BJP MPs to be present in their House throughout.

    The land acquisition ordinance, which the government could not get converted into a legislation in the first half of the budget session in Parliament due to stiff opposition in Rajya Sabha, was re-promulgated on 3rd April, a day before it was to lapse.

    In another tweet, Modi said, “Congrats to BJP leaders & Karyakartas on the Party membership drive crossing 10 crore figure.”

    BJP had Sunday claimed to have crossed the 10-crore membership mark to become the largest party in the world.
