During the second day of the ongoing Winter Session of Parliament, a vigorous debate unfolded in the Lok Sabha regarding two Bills related to the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

On Tuesday, numerous members participated in the debate in the Lower House, and Union Home Minister Amit Shah is anticipated to respond on Wednesday. Throughout the debate, Opposition members, in their respective speeches, alleged that the government was prolonging the elections in Jammu and Kashmir. They contended that despite the Centre asserting a notable enhancement in the law and order situation in the former state, it was hesitating to conduct the assembly polls.

The Lower House deliberated on two Bills, namely the Jammu and Kashmir Reservation (Amendment) Bill, 2023, and the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation (Amendment) Bill, 2023. The Union Home Minister presented both Bills for examination and approval in the Lok Sabha, where the House collectively discussed and debated the two pieces of legislation.

The bill replaces the term "weak and underprivileged classes" with "other backward classes" as identified by the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. Additionally, the definition of weak and underprivileged classes is removed from the Act.
