Those 9 issues of opposition on which preparations are being made to corner the government…
On one hand, the government is going to present some important bills. At the same time, the opposition has also made full preparations to corner the central government. Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha MPs from INDIA held a meeting at Mallikarjun Kharge’s house on 5 September.

There can be uproar over these 5 big issues

1. Controversy regarding the name INDIA: The opposition alliance had announced the name of its alliance as INDIA in a meeting held in Bengaluru on July 18. However, BJP is very aggressive regarding this name. PM Modi had even called it an arrogant alliance. Now there is discussion of changing the name of the country from INDIA to Bharat. Actually, President of India was written in the invitation card given for dinner during the G20 Summit. During the meeting, BHARAT was written on the country’s name plate in front of the PM. The opposition alleges that the government is going to change the name of the country out of fear of the name of INDIA alliance.

2. New Map of China: In this session, the opposition will once again try to corner the central government on the India-China border dispute. China had released a new map on August 28 in which it has declared Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin as its part. However, Foreign Minister S Jaishankar said that China always keeps doing such actions. Rahul Gandhi had recently said during his visit to Ladakh that China has intruded into our area. The whole of Ladakh knows this. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should give a statement on this.

3. One Nation- One Election: The central government has formed a committee on One Nation One Election under the chairmanship of former President Ramnath Kovind on September 1. There are 8 members in this committee including Home Minister Amit Shah. Leader of opposition in Lok Sabha and Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary is also involved in this. However, he has refused to work in the committee.

Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that the truth of the entire episode related to Adani Group can come out only through the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC). Congress is continuously vocal about this issue. Rahul Gandhi had also shown the photographs of Adani and the Prime Minister in Parliament. After this, he lost his membership in a case, although the Supreme Court reinstated his membership.

5. Manipur Violence: Violence has been going on since May 3 in Manipur over reservation between Kuki and Meitei communities. More than 160 people have died in the state so far.
