As per news report of The Indian Express, “When it is listed as consideration and passing of the Bill, why can’t there be a debate? This government, since 2014, has been passing and repealing Bills without any discussions. You have taken this house for a ride,” Choudhary alleged. However, the Speaker said that there could be discussions later but there has to be decorum in the House. He repeatedly said that the House has to be in order for a debate. Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh were present in the House when the Bill was passed. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was in the Lok Sabha when it met in the morning but didn’t come back when the House resumed its session after a brief adjournment at 12 noon.
