The upcoming winter session of Parliament will feature debate on a number of private memberâs bills, including one that would make it illegal for the provision of non-vegetarian food in any capacity within the government, as well as another that would outlaw the practise of bribery in the private sector.
According to a notification from the Lok Sabha, a total of twenty legislation that were submitted by members have been listed for discussion during this session. Although the vast majority of private member bills are shot down in Parliament after only a few minutes of debate, 14 of these pieces of legislation have been successful in getting through the chamber since the countryâs independence. The most recent one was authorized in the year 1970.
The Official Government Meetings and Functions (Prohibition on Serving Non-Vegetarian Food) Bill has been proposed by Parvesh Sahib Singh, a member of Parliament for the BJP who represents West Delhi. âGermanyâs environment ministry submitted a proposal to ban non-vegetarian food in government meetings and functions as it has a huge effect on climate and global warming,â Singh claims.
Singh emphasized that the proposed legislation does not attempt to prohibit all forms of non-vegetarian cuisine for the general public. But even if just the government takes action, we can make progress toward more environmentally responsible lifestyles and more sustainable food systems, he said.
Tirath Singh Rawat, another member of the BJP, had the intention of introducing a measure that would make yoga a required subject in all of the nationâs schools. âYoga must be taught at the school level in the formative years,â stated the former Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, who would pilot the Compulsory Teaching of Yoga in Educational Institutions Bill. It is beneficial to oneâs physical as well as cerebral development.
The MGNREGS (Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme) law is going to be amended, and two opposition MPs, NK Premachandran and VK Sreekandan, both of whom are from Kerala, will be pushing measures with the same objective: to change section 3. According to the provisions of Section 3, the state government is obligated to provide employment to each and every worker for a maximum of one hundred days each year.
The measures are a response to numerous opposition leadersâ demands that an individual be required to labour up to 150 days. The federal government, on the other hand, has steadfastly refused to raise the yearly limit, arguing instead that in the event of a natural disaster, a state is permitted, under the terms of the legislation, to provide employment for up to 150 days.
The Member of Parliament for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Rama Devi, will introduce a measure to ban bribery in the business sector, while the Member of Parliament for the Congress Party, Dean Kuriakose, will introduce a bill to provide compensation to people who have been injured by wildlife. In addition to this, it is anticipated that individual members would propose a number of bills to amend the Constitution.
