Rajya Sabha members have a busy day ahead as key bills come up for passage today, the last day of the winter session. The session has been extended by a day as the government seeks to pass a constitution amendment bill to provide quota for poorer sections among the general category, a bill on the Citizenship Act and one on instant triple talaq.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh said that the burden will not fall on Assam and all migrants are equally eligible to apply for citizenship in India under the new rules being proposed in the Bill.
