The Delhi Police has sent the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha secretariat a list of nearly 30 planned agitations that will take place during the month-long session starting Wednesday

The Winter Session of Parliament beginning on Wednesday is likely to see a united opposition confront the Narendra Modi government over the problems faced by people following the demonetisation move, with issues concerning farmers and one rank one pension (OROP) also likely to be taken up.

Several outfits have also planned protests, including half a dozen Parliament gherao programmes, during the forthcoming Winter Session, The Indian Express reported.

The Delhi Police sent the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha secretariat a list of nearly 30 planned agitations that will take place during the month-long session starting Wednesday.

Protests are planned outside Parliament on issues like government’s stand on triple talaq, missing JNU student’s case, pending dues for sugarcane farmers, reservation in private sector, among others.

In its assessment report on the law and order situation during the session, the Delhi Police anticipate that the issue of missing JNU student Najeeb Ahmad could stage a comeback as the session begins.

Further, an organisation of Muslim Ulemas, the All-India Tanjeem Ulema-e-Islam, plans to organise a protest march on the issue of triple talaq on November 18.

The report also mentions the ongoing protest by two gauraksha outfits at Jantar Mantar seeking cow protection, which are expected to continue during the session.
