Lok Sabha to take up Uttarakhand budget on Monday

 Lok Sabha may see confrontation between the Congress and the ruling BJP on Monday , as the Lower House of Parliament is scheduled to take up discussion on the Uttarakhand budget for 2016-17, a day ahead of the floor test in the assembly.

 
The government's agenda for the next week, includes passage of the anti-hijacking Bill, Indian trusts (amendment) bill and child labour amendment bill.
 
The discussion on the Uttarakhand budget and passing of the Uttarakhand Appropriation (vote on account) bill, 2016 to replace the ordinance, has been listed by the government in the Lok Sabha for Monday, with the crucial floor test in the Assembly set for Tuesday. 
 
Congress has been at loggerheads with the government over the imposition of President's Rule in the state, where Congress chief minister Harish Rawat was in power till March 27. 
 
President's rule was imposed in Uttarakhand on March 27. It was lifted following an Uttarakhand High Court order on April 21 but was reimposed by the Supreme Court a day later.
 
The apex court on Friday asked Uttarakhand's ousted chief minister Harish Rawat to prove his majority in the Assembly on Tuesday. It ordered that President's Rule in the  state will be kept in abeyance from 10.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for the house to conduct its proceedings.
