Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and triple talaq Bill lapsed

14 February 2019 Current Affairs:

The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2019 lapsed as the government failed to push it through Rajya Sabha despite a last- ditch effort as the term of the present Lok Sabha ends. 
The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill was seen as violating the terms of the 1985 Assam Accord that had set March 24, 1971 as the cut-off for granting citizenship. 
Along with the Citizenship Bill, the triple talaq Bill that criminalises instant divorce in a Muslim marriage has also lapsed.
