The NCT Bill that would reduce the powers of the Delhi government passed easily in the Lok Sabha on Thursday, but INDIA bloc parties plan to return to protests on Friday, seeking a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The bill has been criticised for being unconstitutional and undermining the authority of democratically elected state governments. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier warned of a mass movement if the bill is passed. The Opposition in India launched a strong attack on the government over the NCT Bill in the Lok Sabha. The Aam Aadmi Party sought the support of its new allies on the issue, and the stakes were high given the potential impact on Opposition unity.
