The Winter Session of Parliament is underway.

Parliament Winter Session 2019 LIVE Updates: The Constitution (Amendment) Bill got passed in the Upper House of the Parliament Thursday with opposition questioning the government's agenda of not continuing the reservation provision to the Anglo Indian community.

Earlier on Wednesday, the contentious Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was cleared by the Rajya Sabha with a 125-99 margin. The nearly eight-hour fiery debate saw the Opposition opposing the controversial Bill on several grounds. The Congress, which led the charge, focused largely on Constitutional aspects. The Trinamool Congress focused more on West Bengal linking CAB with the NRC while the DMK raised the issue of the exclusion of Sri Lankan Tamils from the Bill.

The Shiv Sena, which had supported the Bill in Lok Sabha changed its stance and its three members walked out before voting. Given its hard Hindutva background, the party could not have opposed the Bill and its tactical walkout ensured that it does not ruffle the feathers of its newfound allies NCP and the Congress in Maharashtra.
