The Economic Survey will be tabled on Tuesday after the President’s address. At an all-party meeting convened by it on Monday, the government said it was willing to discuss every issue under the rules during the Budget Session of Parliament.
“We seek the Opposition’s cooperation” in running the proceedings smoothly, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said after the meeting which was attended by 37 leaders, including Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, representing 27 parties.
At the meeting, Aam Aadmi Party’s Sanjay Singh, RJD’s Manoj Jha, DMK, Left parties and others raised the Adani issue and sought a discussion on it in Parliament during the session.
The US-based short seller Hindenburg Research has accused the Adani Group of wrongdoings like stock manipulation. The company has dismissed the allegations as “nothing but a lie”.
Parties like the BRS and DMK raised the issue of conduct of governors in states ruled by them.
The YSR Congress demanded a nationwide caste-based economic census.
It is necessary to know the economic status of backward castes which are “lagging behind” on social and development indicators, the party said.
