New Delhi The Opposition is likely to demand a discussion on the Agnipath defense recovery scheme in Parliament coming week after the debate on price rise is taken up in both the Houses, sources said Sunday.
A discussion on price rise has been listed in the Lok Sabha for Monday and in the Rajya Sabha on a coming day.

Opposition leaders said while there’s an agreement among them about the need for a discussion on Agnipath, which had sparked wide violence across the country, they’ve varied stages on the subject.
With slightly 10 working days remaining before the Monsoon Session gets over on August 12, it’s doubtful the parties would be suitable to prize a debate on the new fortified forces recovery scheme in either House.
“We’ll doubtlessly raise the issue in Parliament, still there’s really small time to drive a discourse on it as the session is finishing on Eminent 12, and in between, there’s a weekend, the vice presidential election as well as the farewell for( gregarious vice chairman) Venkaiah Naidu,” said an opposition leader.
Also, some leaders said the parties have also different stages on the issue with those rested in the northern region demanding a complete withdrawal of the scheme, while some like the TMC asking that state governments be freed of the liability to give jobs to the Agniveers.

Congress leaders similar to Rajya Sabha MP from Haryana Deepender Singh Hooda have demanded a complete rollback.
Sources said the Rashtriya Lok Dal( RLD), Rashtriya Janata Dal( RJD), Samajwadi Party, and the Congress have formerly filed notices demanding a discussion on Agnipath in both Houses. Three notices were to be filed on Monday.

Opposition leaders have indicated the government has conveyed to them informally they’ve no plans of accommodating their request on Agnipath as the matter issub- judice.
The government has also listed two bills– The Central Universities( Correction)
Charge, 2022 to be presented, and The Wild Life( Security) Revision Charge, 2021 to be passed within the Lok Sabha.

In the Rajya Sabha too two Bills will come up for consideration and passing on Monday– the Munitions of Mass Destruction and their Delivery Systems( Prohibition of Unlawful exertion) Act, 2005; and a Bill to give for the public measures for guarding the Antarctic terrain and dependent and associated ecosystems and to give effect to the Antarctic Treaty, the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living coffers and to the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty.
