Will the government be able to pass the Delhi Service Bill in the Rajya Sabha? understand math
After the Lok Sabha, now everyone’s eyes are on the Rajya Sabha whether the central government will succeed in passing the Delhi Services Bill in the Upper House? For this one has to understand the mathematics of the number of MPs in the Rajya Sabha. There are 238 MPs in the Rajya Sabha. The government will need 119 MPs to pass the bill.
BJP currently has 92 MPs in the Rajya Sabha, but it is said to have 103 MPs including allies. Five nominated MPs are also included. Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party has 9 and Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik’s party Biju Janata Dal has 9 MPs. Both these parties have also spoken of supporting the central government.
How many MPs are there in the Rajya Sabha of the opposition coalition INDIA?
The government can also get the support of two independent MPs. Apart from this, BSP and TDP have one MP each in the Upper House. Before the introduction of the bill in the Lok Sabha, the BSP had talked about boycotting, while the TDP had talked about supporting the government. From this point of view, the central government seems to be collecting the necessary majority figure to pass the bill in the upper house, while the opposition coalition INDIA has 109 MPs in the Rajya Sabha.
Explain that this bill will replace the applicable ordinance for the formation of an authority for transfer and posting of Group-A officers. Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party has gathered support from several opposition parties, including the Congress, to protest against this bill.
