It should be noted that almost twenty-Two bills have lapsed with the dissolution of 16th Lok Sabha. Among the most controversial bills that lapse is Citizenship Amendment Bill 2016, Triple Talaq Bill, Adhaar and Other Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2019 that was cleared by Lok Sabha but could not be taken for discussion in the upper House of the Parliament.
These Bill will again likely to run into hurdles this term around, with a majority of the members in the upper house Rajya Sabha opposing the bill before it was even tabled in the House.
