LS debate on anti-rape bill

by plainspeak

Happened to see some part of the debate. Some observations:

1. Around 200 out of a total of 540 people were present in the Parliament. No Rahul, No Sonia.
2. Two BJD members were very prompt and moved amendments, explaining what the amendments were, while most people introducing amendments didn’t give an explanation as to what their amendments were.One BJD member wanted a division of vote(to embarrass the govt) on the amendment that stalking be made non-bailable . Ms. Meera Kumar cheekily didn’t allow it.
