Amidst the national attention on the impending Parliamentary's Budget session, the opposition parties including the national and the regional have been drawing the plan to target the BJP in the Budget session at a high time when the Modi regime will table its full budget ahead of the crucial 2024 Lok Sabha polls. There are a slew of issues where the BJP would be targeted in both the chambers of the Parliament.
In a slew of issues, Tamil Nadu ruling DMK has decided to highlight two recent and important issues against the BJP along with the state-related issues. Those two important topics would be - BJP's ban on the Modi documentary about Prime Minister Modi and the Hindenburg Research's report on Adani Group, that is beleaguering Gautam Adani's incredibly-grown business empire.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK's president MK Stalin has asked the party's MPs to speak about these two issues along with a host of other issues. MK Stalin has convened a meeting of party MPs on Sunday during which he advised them to debate with firmness in Parliament on Tamil Nadu related key issues, the controversy over the BBC documentary on 2002 Gujarat riots and the fallout of investors from the Adani Group following the Hindenburg Research's report.
In a meeting that took note of the serious challenges posed to the pluralism and sovereignty of the nation, MK Stalin has further advised the DMK MPs to voice the party's views on efforts aimed at altering the basic features of the Constitution. After the meeting, a DMK press release said that the party discussed the important issues to be debated during the Union Budget session.
Some of the key issues that would be taken up by the DMK include - seeking exemption for Tamil Nadu from National Eligibility Entrance Test (NEET) by acquiring the consent from the President to the bill that was passed by the state assembly, implementation of the Sethusamudram project, and attack on fishermen by Sri Lanka. After attending the meeting, one of the MPs has said, "Our leader specifically asked us to raise issues related to the Hindenburg report and ban on the BBC documentary."
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will be presenting the Union budget on February 1 and during the budget session, the Congress party has planned to raise the India-China border issue and it has been reported that several regional parties have also planned to stress the pending funds and projects from the Union government along with urging an immediate measure to address the growing unemployment crisis across the country.
