LUC­KNOW: The Ut­tar Pradesh Con­trol of Or­gan­ised Crime Bill (UPCOCB), 2017, which was passed by the Vid­han Sabha in the last ses­sion, failed to sail through in the Vid­han Par­ishad on Tues­day.

The united op­po­si­tion unan­i­mously re­jected the pro­posal to clear the bill in­tro­duced by the Yogi Adityanath govern­ment.

On the op­po­si­tion’s de­mand, the bill was re­ferred to the se­lect com­mit­tee in De­cem­ber last year.

The se­lect com­mit­tee, headed by chief min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath, how­ever, found that the op­po­si­tion had not sug­gested any amend­ments to the Bill for the com­mit­tee to con­sider and the re­port of the com­mit­tee was tabled in the floor of the up­per house ac­cord­ingly last week.

But on Tues­day, as leader of the house, Di­nesh Sharma moved the pro­posal for con­sid­er­a­tion of the bill by the mem­bers the op­po­si­tion re­jected the pro­posal with one voice.

“Prac­ti­cally the bill has been de­feated in the up­per house since the very pro­posal to con­sider the same was re­jected by the op­po­si­tion that is in ma­jor­ity,” said a Vid­han Par­ishad of­fi­cial.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the bill will now again be sent to the Vid­han Sabha for pas­sage and the bill passed there will be sent back to the Vid­han Par­ishad for clear­ance.

“If the Vid­han Par­ishad re­jects the bill again or passes the bill with amend­ments not ac­cept­able to the lower house or does not pass the bill within one month, then the bill will be deemed to have been passed by both the houses in the form in which it was passed by the Vid­han Sabha for the sec­ond time,” he ex­plained.

He said there ap­peared to be lit­tle pos­si­bil­ity of the bill get­ting passed dur­ing the cur­rent ses­sion go­ing by the fact the on­go­ing bud­get ses­sion will end af­ter two weeks.
