Introducing the Bill in the Rajya Sabha, he said that the Bill was not brought for every case, but for those cases where the sections are serious. The purpose of bringing this bill is to punish the guilty and not to harass the innocent. Union Minister Amit Shah said that nowadays it seems that the old law is not enough. The Anusthan Commission has also given its price satisfaction before the Bill is introduced in the Parliament.

On the other hand, speaking on the bill, senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said, “I am sad that this bill is violating the Constitution.” No advice has been taken before bringing this bill. “My colleagues are constantly talking about sending the bill to the select committee and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that,” Chidambaram said. If you have been waiting for 102 years to amend the law, you cannot wait 102 days more. Chidambaram said that the bill is completely unconstitutional. That’s why we are opposing this bill.

During the discussion on the bill, former DGP and sitting BJP MP Brijlal also referred to the Godhra incident and said that he had talked about giving a different look to the incident, which necessitated amendment in the law. Brijlal also referred to the Batla House incident in Delhi and said that some political parties also tried to politicize there and shed tears for the terrorists. Amit Shah said that what Brijlal had said was true as the Supreme Court had also accepted it in its order.

Amit Shah said that this research is being done so that people involved in serious crimes are not released due to lack of evidence. In lower courts, only 44% of people are convicted of murder. Juvenile crime is convicted in only 37% of cases. Referring to different countries, Shah said that how the law is strict there and the guilty are punished.
