Congress set to lose chairmanship of Rajya Sabha panel on home

The govt is unwilling to accommodate Congress’ request to let it retain the helmsmanship of the department-related standing committee (DRSC) on home affairs in Rajya Sabha. The decision to withdraw Congress’ leadership of the DRSC on home affairs in the RS and IT and communications in LS is being done “as per the existing strength of the parties” and in light of its numbers in RS coming down since 2019, sources said.
