MPs of TMC, SP, BJP and YSRCP give Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha over different Issues

Rajya Sabha MPs of Trinamool Congress (TMC), YSR Congress Party, Bharatiya Janata Party and Samajwadi Party (SP) on Thursday gave zero hour notice in the Upper House of the Parliament on several issues.

YSR Congress Party Rajya Sabha MP V Vijaya Sai Reddy has given Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha and has demanded that a central team be sent to Andhra Pradesh in the light of severe drought there. While Trinamool Congress MP Shanta Chhetri has given Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha over the shifting of Gorkha Recruitment depot and Gorkha Record office from Darjeeling.

Bharatiya Janata Party MP Mahesh Poddar has given Zero hour Notice in Rajya Sabha over ban on a hand-pulled rickshaw in Kolkata. While from the Samajwadi Party, Rajya Sabha MP Surendra Singh Nagar has given Zero Hour Notice in the upper House of Parliament over “deteriorating condition of farmers in the country”.

Trinamool Congress MP Manish Gupta has given Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha over “delay by Centre to rename West Bengal as Bangla, after State assembly has passed the same “.

It is worth noted that the Central Government on Wednesday refused to give its approval for changing the name of West Bengal to ‘Bangla’ – a demand echoed by the state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Speaking in the Upper House of Parliament, Minister of State Home Nityanand Rai denied that Government has cleared the name ‘Bangla’ for West Bengal as proposed by West Bengal Government. The government said that the Constitutional amendment is needed to change the name of a state.

The Zero House of the Rajya Sabha refers to the time immediately following the Question Hour, where Parliamentarians can raise issues of great importance without the mandatory 10 days advance notice.

The Session of the Upper House of the Parliament, Rajya Sabha started from June 20 and will continue till July 26.
