Parliament likely to be disrupted over cash transfer scheme

The Parliament is likely to be disrupted on Friday over Aadhar-based cash transfer scheme.


The BJP has accused Congress of gettting political mileagefrom Aadhar-based cash transfer scheme and wanted to know why Rahul Gandhi is part of the policy's monitoring committee.

It has just been announced that the debate and vote on FDI will take place on 6 and 7 December in the Rajya Sabha. The announcement was made following an all-party meet on Thursday, when the government indicated that it would be willing  for a debate and vote under section 184.

But the logjam over FDI was over as the government has agreed to a vote on FDI in retail in the Rajya Sabha also. The debate will take place under rule 168 that entails voting in Rajya Sabha. But the Samawadi Party is giving the government jitters with the party leader in the Rajya Sabha, Ram Gopal Yadav, saying the party will vote against FDI in retail in the upper house. "We will vote against the government in the Rajya Sabha and there can be a different stand in both the Houses," Yadav said. However, the Samajwadi Party is expected to abstain from voting on the issue in the Lok Sabha.

BJP said it is not opposed to Aadhar-based cash transfer scheme and that there was nothing new in the announcement for which Congress is taking "political mileage".

It also said its state governments have been implementing similar schemes for years.

"There is nothing new in this method. Many state governments give scholarships and pensions to the bank accounts of the people directly. Moreover, the central government is not giving any additional subsidy through this scheme," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

The principal opposition maintained, "While people are reeling under inflation, Congress is only making efforts to take political mileage for nothing."

Javadekar said, "We are not opposed to the scheme but it should be implemented in a secure manner as many poor people do not have bank accounts. The money should reach the right people. There are many challenges in its implementation."


  BJP Chief Spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad raised several objections to the manner in which the government has announced the cash transfer scheme and its implemention.  "Two senior ministers announced the cash transfer scheme in Congress office. If this scheme is a gamechanger (as claimed by Finance Minister P Chidambaram), then why was it not announced in Parliament? Why was Parliament bypassed on this" Prasad said.

  BJP has appointed a two-member committee comprising of senior MPs M Venkaiah Naidu and Yashwant Sinha to look into the cash transfer scheme which will help those getting pensions, scholarships and are beneficiaries of government welfare schemes.

  "While people are reeling under inflation, Congress is only making efforts to take political mileage for nothing,"BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

 The opposition party sought to know what role Gandhi will play in the implementation of the scheme. "Under what capacity will Rahul Gandhi will be monitoring the scheme He does not hold any constitutional office. And this use of the slogan "aapka paise, aapke haath"..." Prasad said, referring to the hand which is Congress election symbol. BJP said its state governments have been implementing similar schemes for years.
