Top news with NDTV’s Gargi Rawat | As protests continue against the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, which was cleared by the Lok Sabha on Monday amid vehement opposition, the bill is set to be tabled in Rajya Sabha today. While the BJP and its allies in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) enjoy an overwhelming majority in the lower house that helped it get 334 votes in favour of the bill, and 106 against in the lower house, the party’s hold on the Rajya Sabha is wobblier. With a current strength of 240, the majority mark in the upper house is 121. The NDA, which includes parties like AIADMK, Janata Dal-United and the Akali Dal, has 116 members and expects the support of 14 others, taking its numbers to 130.
