- The opposition objected to the speed of consideration of bills by the parliamentary standing committee and protested the lack of consultation.
The parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs has postponed the adoption of a draft report on three bills to replace the current criminal law, following pressure from opposition parties who wanted more time to consider the bills.
According to sources, the English version of the draft report was circulated last week and the Hindi version was sent to members of the parliamentary panel only on Thursday evening, just hours before the report. approved as scheduled at Friday’s council meeting.
Three members – Congress MPs Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and Digivijay Singh, along with Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam MP N.R. Sources said Elango – has so far filed objections. They are demanding some changes in the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita, 2023, which will replace the Indian Penal Code, and the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita, 2023, which will replace the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). More dissenting notes are expected.
A key point of contention, the Hindi terminology of the bills, was not accepted in the draft reports. The Panel’s report said that because the text of the bill is in English, it does not violate the provisions of Article 348 of the Constitution.
