MOHAMMAD Salim, Member of Parliament in Lok Sabha termed the triple talaq bill as unnecessary and inappropriate. Participating in the discussion on December 27 he said exactly a year ago we had discussed about this issue and we had opposed it even at that time. In the Rajya Sabha a committee was formed but the report is still awaited; then you brought in an ordinance. This shows how parliamentary democracy is functioning under your regime; all with desperation.
Mohd Salim while speaking on the no-confidence motion in Lok Sabha
On July 20, there was discussion in the Lok Sabha on the no-confidence motion. Participating in the discussion Mohd Salim said “ the council of ministers lack confidence of this house”. When the discussion began in the morning this confidence further fell.

The council of ministers should have been defended, which was not done by their leader.

I WOULD like to suggest to hold two meetings of the NEC in a year. One meeting may be in the beginning of the financial year to finalise the annual budget and plan, and next one after a considerable time gap to undertake a review of the activities and performance on the basis of the budget and the adopted time specific schemes and projects.
