CHENNAI: DMK president and Chief Minister MK Stalin on Saturday told party MPs to work with India’s allies to prioritize important issues like the Manipur violence and exposing irregularities in the CAG report during the special session of Parliament beginning on September 18. Give. Defeat the conspiracies of the BJP and ensure justice for our great republic,” he said.
“As we approach the special parliamentary session from September 18, it is time to unite and make a great impact. Our mission is clear: Do not be influenced by BJP’s distraction tactics. Stand strong, raise your voice and give priority to urgent issues,” the DMK president said while chairing a meeting of party MPs.
DMK sources said party MPs have been advised to be compulsorily present in both Houses of Parliament on all five days of the special session as the BJP government may bring issues or bills which are not part of the agenda due to which there is a lot of speculation. Are. About the session.
A resolution was passed at the DMK MPs’ meeting urging the Central government to direct Karnataka to release Cauvery water to Tamil Nadu to save standing crops in the delta districts. The resolution also said that the DMK will raise the NEET issue and the bill granting exemption for NEET in Tamil Nadu should be approved immediately.
The BJP government did not say anything about 33% reservation for women in state assemblies and Parliament and despite repeated requests, the BJP government did not come forward to ensure this reservation for women. DMK will raise its voice strongly to get the bill passed in this regard.
The resolution also said that DMK MPs will seek to introduce and pass a bill to remove the 50% limit for reservation and implement full reservation in central government departments as recommended by the Mandal Commission. Apart from this, the MPs will also demand reservation in the private sector and increase in the creamy layer for BCs. The resolution further said that DMK MPs will oppose the Vishwakarma scheme in the special session.
