What is rule 267 and 176 on which the government and the opposition are fighting? Due to 4 reasons things are not being done in the Parliament -aabtak24


Parliament Monsoon Session 2023: In Manipur, people are trying to save their remaining lives, while in Delhi, there is a war on Manipur violence. On the third day of the monsoon session, there was a lot of uproar in the Parliament regarding the Manipur issue. A coalition of opposition parties demonstrated in both houses of Parliament over the statement of PM Modi on Manipur violence. 

There is ruckus in the Parliament on Manipur for three days. In the Rajya Sabha, Aam Aadmi Party MP Sansad Singh was suspended from the House for the entire monsoon session. The government is ready to present its stand on the Manipur violence in the House but the matter is stuck on a technicality.

What is Rule 267 and Rule 176?
The government is repeatedly saying that it is ready for debate but the matter is stuck on the rule of debate. The opposition demands that there should be a discussion under Rule 267, after which there is a provision for voting. Government seeks debate under Rule 176 after which voting does not take place. 

Union Minister Smriti Irani said in a statement, the opposition is running away from the discussion in the House because they have to ensure that they talk about the incidents happening with women in their states. The Congress party does not want to discuss the incident with the woman in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Bengal.

Why is there no consensus between the government and the opposition?
There are other issues, first the opposition wants discussion only on Manipur while the ruling party wants discussion on West Bengal and Rajasthan as well. The second opposition wants the PM to make a statement on Manipur, while the government is saying that Home Minister Amit Shah will make a statement. The third opposition wants that there should be no time limit for debate in the Parliament, while the government is ready for 150 minutes of debate in the House. The fourth opposition is demanding voting after the debate 
while the government is not ready to vote after the debate.

On the other hand, violence has been going on in Manipur for more than 80 days. Sporadic violence is still happening in many areas of Manipur. No one pays attention to that. Floods have created havoc in many states of the country. There is no one to take care of the people. There has been an uproar in Parliament regarding the statement. Proceedings stalled.
