Electoral Reforms Bill Passed In Rajya Sabha Amidst Opposition Walkout

New Delhi: The Rajya Sabha on Tuesday passed the Election Laws (Amendment) Bill, 2021, to link electoral roll data with Aadhaar even as the Opposition staged a walkout from the House.

The Bill was passed in Lok Sabha on Monday amid protests from the Opposition, including the Congress. Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday introduced amendments to the Representation of the People Act, 1950, and the Representation of the People Act, 1951.

According to a report by IANS, the amendment will allow the Aadhaar number to be used for voter registration “for the purpose of establishing the identity.” By replacing the word “wife” with “spouse,” the amendment also intends to include gender-neutral words into the Representation of the People Act.
