Rahul Gandhi, Adani, and Government vs Opposition Stalls Parliament

In the midst of disarray caused by the BJP's attack on Rahul Gandhi's speech in London and the
opposition's demand for a Joint Parliamentary Committee investigation into the Adani-Hindenberg
dispute, Parliament adjourned early today without accomplishing anything.
For the first time since the controversy over his statements about the state of Indian democracy in
London, Rahul Gandhi was spotted in the Lok Sabha. Yet, both houses convened for a brief period of
time before calling a day's adjournment.
The Congress leader had recently told NDTV, "I will speak inside the House if they let me to. When
asked to apologise by the BJP, he responded, "I didn't give any anti-India statement."
Trinamool Party protesters surrounded the Speaker's chair in Lok Sabha while covering their lips
with a black ribbon. Afterwards, opposition supporters assembled in a human chain outside of
parliament to demand an investigation into the Adani-Hindenburg dispute.
The deadlock between the administration and the opposition has put a stop to all work on the
Budget session's second half.
This morning, Law Minister Kiren Rijiju increased the pressure on the Congress by charging Rahul
Gandhi with lying about the UK and disparaging the country.
Speaking to reporters, Mr. Rijiju said, "The person who speaks the most in this nation and constantly
criticises the government claims overseas that he does not have the freedom to speak in India.
"We don't care if Rahul Gandhi brings down the Congress. Yet, we as citizens cannot remain silent if
he attempts to harm or insult the country. The country may have rejected the leadership of the
Congress, but that does not give him the right to mistreat the country overseas "Added he.
"Members of the anti-India group all speak in the same vein. Whatever Rahul Gandhi says, they
repeat it "Mr. Rijiju ranting.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi frequently criticised the Congress while travelling abroad, thus the
Congress has ruled out an apology.
Mr. Kharge added, "I want to ask those who are asking an apology that Modiji went to five to six
nations and there he (Modi) humiliated our country claiming it was a shame to be born in India, now
these same people are curtailing freedom of expression.
Rahul Gandhi has received criticism from a number of Union Ministers for his remarks in London.

After Repeal of Assam Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Law, What Changes Can be Expected?

After Repeal of Assam Muslim Marriage and Divorce Registration Law, What Changes Can be Expected?

The Assam Muslim Marriages and Divorces Registration Act, 1935, was authorized for repeal by the Assam Cabinet on Friday. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma wrote on X that the step will help the administration prevent underage weddings in the state. The Assam government revoked the historic Assam Muslim Marriages and Divorces Registration Act on February 23. This act’s provisions allowed for marriage registration even in situations when the bride and husband were younger than the legally required 18 and 21 years old, respectively.

The speaker said, “With this action, Assam’s ban on underage weddings takes a major step closer to reality.” The administration explained its decision to abolish the act by stating that it is not required by law to register marriages or divorces. It further stated that there is a great deal of room for normative non-compliance due to the informal registration apparatus. The Act’s provisions allow intended individuals under the age of 21 for men and 18 for women to remain married, and there is essentially no oversight for its implementation,” the state government stated.

What will change after the implementation of this order?

Currently, Muslim marriages and divorces can be voluntarily registered under the law. Additionally, it gave the government permission to grant Muslim individuals licenses to register these kinds of unions and dissolution. These people won’t be allowed to register marriages and divorces after the law is overturned. After the law is repealed, the 94 Muslim Marriage Registrars’ registration records would be under the district commissioners’ and district registrars’ care, according to the Assam government.

After the Act is repealed, the government will give each Muslim Marriage Registrar ₹2 lakh as a one-time payment towards their rehabilitation. According to Baruah, the Assam government desires that all of these unions be legally recognized through the Special Marriage Act. He added that minor boys’ and girls’ weddings were being registered under the Act.

government’s UCC promise

The creation of the UCC was the main promise that Himanta Biswa Sarma made to the people of Assam upon being named chief minister of the state. He declared earlier this month that polygamy would be illegal in the state. He has often declared that Assam will ratify the Uniform Civil Code, following Gujarat and Uttarakhand as the third states to do so. Earlier this month, the Uttarakhand government approved the Uniform Civil Code bill during its assembly. The measure replaces several religious personal regulations with common laws that apply to people of all religions and govern marriage, divorce, and inheritance.]

Sarma stated in January that Assam’s UCC law is in line with the bills introduced by Gujarat and Uttarakhand. According to him, the tribe will not be covered by the Uniform Civil Code. In two to three months, he suggested, the UCC measure may be introduced. Tribals are also exempt from the Uttarakhand bill. The exception has been questioned by Muslim organizations. According to Asaduddin Owaisi, the head of AIMIM, the UCC was violating the fundamental rights of the Muslim community.

Kamal Nath Refers to Rahul Gandhi as ‘Our Leader’, Dismisses BJP Switch Rumors

Amid the excitement surrounding his recent alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh and seasoned Congressman Kamal Nath called on state residents and party employees to join Rahul Gandhi in his ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra, which aims to combat oppression and injustice. Nath complimented Gandhi and said the party workers are eager to greet him after he took to the streets nationwide and vowed to combat injustice head-on. The party veteran added that they will work together to put an end to the second iteration of the Bharat Jodo Yatra against injustice, while also dispelling any rumors that he would be joining the saffron camp.

“The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi is eagerly anticipated by Madhya Pradesh residents and Congressmen. Taking to the streets nationwide, our leader Shri Rahul Gandhi has vowed to fight back against injustice, tyranny, and exploitation with the utmost determination. I implore the people of Madhya Pradesh and the courageous Congress activists to emulate Rahul Gandhi’s strength and bravery by participating in the Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra in large numbers. In a post on X (previously Twitter), he declared, “Together, you and I will bring this great campaign against injustice to an end.”

All rumors regarding his plan to switch to the BJP have been quashed by his words. In the meantime, several party leaders from the Chhindwara district of MP, a bastion of Nath’s, joined the BJP on Wednesday. There has been conjecture in the political corridors over Kamal Nath and his son’s potential breakup with the Congress. The veteran leader and his son Nakul Nath, according to Congress general secretary Jitendra Singh earlier this week, would take part in the grand old party’s ongoing Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra when it entered the state.

Leading up to its conclusion in Mumbai on March 20, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra is the second iteration of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began in Manipur on January 14. In 2022–2023, the inaugural ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ took place, stretching from Kanyakumari through Kashmir. He further asserted that the media and the BJP were responsible for spreading rumors about the previous chief minister of MP switching allegiance and joining the BJP. According to reports, Kamal Nath was upset that Rahul Gandhi rejected him after the party lost the assembly elections late last year and that he did not receive a seat in the Rajya Sabha.
