After several speculations about the agenda for discussion in the special session of Parliament, the central government on Wednesday, released a list of agenda to be table in the special session starting from September 18 to 22.

The centre has released four bills in a tentative list for discussion where two bills will be taken up in the Rajya Sabha while another two in the Lok Sabha.

There will be a discussion on the Parliamentary Journey of 75 years starting from Samvidhan Sabha, Achievements, Experiences, Memories and Learnings in the Lok Sabha on the first day of a special session, as per the Lok Sabha bulletin.

According to bulletins, the centre list includes the Chief Election Commissioner and other Election Commissioners (Appointment, Conditions of Service and Term of Office) Bill, the Advocates (Amendment) Bill, the Post Office Bill, and the Press and Registration of Periodicals Bill for discussion in the special session of Parliament.

The centre has revealed the agenda after a controversial discussion for a few days on the removal of the country’s name India from the constitution and naming it Bharat. The centre has replaced the name of India with Bharat on several occasions leading to speculation of changing the name to Bharat. After the opposition bloc chose the alliance name INDIA, the Modi-led BJP government has criticised the opposition and now prefers to use Bharat instead of India for their official purposes.

Earlier on September 6, Congress parliamentary party chief Sonia Gandhi, wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting, during the upcoming special session of Parliament later this month, to discuss nine issues, including the Manipur issue, the current state of the economy with a focus on inflation and unemployment, recent information about the Adani group, the demand for a JPC, and the urgent need for a caste census, party leader Jairam Ramesh said during the press conference.

On August 31, the Union Minister of Parliament affairs, Pralhad Joshi announced a special session of Parliament starting from September 18 to 22.

The central government has also invited leaders of all-party for a meeting on September 17 at 4:30 pm, a day before Parliament’s special session begins on September 18.

Sikkim: 23 Army personnel missing after flash floods destroy roads and bridges

After the cloud burst in Singtam, a flash flood alert was issued throughout Sikkim. Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang, assessed the flood-like situation.

Sikkim

A swift flood in the Teesta river in Sikkim’s Lachen Valley on Wednesday morning resulted in at least 23 Army personnel went missing. Defence officials revealed that some Army vehicles were swept away in the flash flood. A search effort has been started.

As the flash flood that have been caused by an eruption from a glacier lake, which destryoyed the Army trucks that were parked at Bardang near Singtam. In North Sikkim’s Chungthang, the water level climbed upstream to a height of up to 15-20 feet, wiping away a number of dwellings and infrastructure. The flash flood wiped away a part of NH-10 in Melli that connects Sikkim with West Bengal.

After the cloud burst in Singtam, a flash flood alert was issued throughout Sikkim. Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang, assessed the flood-like situation.

A cloudburst was short, intense downpour that only affected a small area. A cloud burst is defined as a tiny area that experiences more than 100 mm of rain in about an hour.

The quick flooding of a small region known as a flash flood can result from a number of different things, such as severe rain, cloudbursts, dam breaks, etc.

The last few days have seen significant rainfall in Sikkim. However, the glacier Lake Outburst Flood (GLOF), which is brought on by the failure of a dam enclosing a glacier lake, may be responsible for the flash flood.

The GLOF reportedly took place in Lhonak Lake. A significant volume of water flowed into Teesta along with heavy rain. The flood scenario in the state is probably going to get worse because Sikkim is currently on red alert with a heavy rainfall warning.

Due to intense monsoon rains, the North Sikkim district suffered a disastrous flash flood earlier in June of this year. The Pegong area saw unusual severe floods, which caused the closure of NH10 and severely harmed the highway’s infrastructure, making it dangerous for any vehicular traffic. Areas like Lachen and Lachung were blocked off from the rest of the state as a result of the adjacent rivers overflowing as a result of the heavy rainfall.

Around 2,400 tourists were left stranded in the area by the rapid flooding, and the Army was called in to conduct rescue operations.

Liquor policy case: ED raids AAP MP Sanjay Singh’s Delhi’s residence

The Delhi government’s 2021 liquor policy, which was later abandoned, was the subject of the excise policy litigation.

Liquor policy case

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh’s home is being searched in connection with a money laundering investigation involving the Delhi liquor policy issue. Early in the morning, Enforcement Directorate (ED) agents arrived at the Rajya Sabha MP’s Delhi residence.

After Manish Sisodia, a former deputy chief minister in the AAP government in Delhi, was detained by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in February, Singh is the most recent AAP leader to be under investigation by the federal agencies in the liquor policy case.

The Delhi government’s 2021 liquor policy, which was later abandoned, was the subject of the excise policy litigation. In the same case in April, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also questioned for over nine hours.

One of the case’s approvers, the businessman Dinesh Arora, alleged that Singh had introduced him to Sisodia, the excise minister at the time.

However, despite the ED having filed three chargesheets in the case, he was never included as an accuser. Although he was mentioned in the chargesheets, he was neither summoned nor did his testimony in this matter be recorded.

The CBI claims that the excise policy, which would have generated a 12% profit for the companies, was drafted with the involvement of the alcohol industry. According to the FBI, a spirits lobby it called the South Group received bribes in exchange for it. According to the organisation, of the anticipated 12% profit, 6% was transferred through middlemen to public employees.

The alleged laundering of the kickbacks is being looked examined by the ED.

The BJP said that when the strategy was abandoned, the Delhi administration reinstated the previous liquor regulations in order to hide the corruption. His party said that Sisodia’s arrest was a attack on the Delhi model of governance notwithstanding his denial of any illegal activity.
