Rajya Sabha discussion on CAB to begin at 2 pm Wednesday

Congress MP Chhaya Verma has given a Zero Hour Notice in the Rajya Sabha over the "unprecedented rise" in the price of onions, and Biju Janata Dal MP Prasanna Acharya has given one on India's "alarming position" in the 2019 Global Hunger Index.

In both Houses of Parliament, the Zero Hour refers to the time immediately following the Question Hour, during which MPs can bring up important issues without the mandatory advance notice of 10 days.

Six hours have been allotted for Rajya Sabha members to discuss the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill tomorrow, starting at 2 pm.
