The government wants the bill to be discussed in the Upper House tomorrow, so that parties opposing it are exposed. "This is only talaq-e-biddat (triple talaq)", Chowdhury said.
BJP leaders feel the party gains both in getting the Bill passed on the same day - as it can then take credit for getting the landmark legislation passed that would win it some support from aggrieved Muslim women - and in it being sent to a select committee, as then the ruling party would go to town alleging Congress and others have delayed the Bill.
The opposition parties are said to be planning for either amendments against criminalising triple talaq or referring the bill to a select committee for detailed consideration.
According to the sources, leader of opposition in the Upper House Ghulam Nabi Azad has convened a meeting of the leaders of his party (the Congress) as well as other parties in his Parliament chamber, before the bill is taken up. The government plans to table the bill in the Rajya Sabha, where it is in a minority, on Wednesday.

It's good to see these youngsters head into their offseasons on a good note. "It's about how they play together", he said. McCarthy and the Packers coaching staff obviously saw something on field they thought they could exploit and did.
The sources added that while the Congress was in favor of the Bill as it proposed to ban instant triple talaq, whether it would press for sending it to the Select Committee, as has been the practice in the Rajya Sabha, would only be seen on Tuesday.
The government on Tuesday shot down the Opposition's demand that the triple talaq bill be sent to a select committee of the Rajya Sabha, but indicated that it might be open to accepting some of the amendments to the bill suggested by the Opposition.
He also said the Congress did not press for amendment in the Lok Sabha and should similarly ensure smooth passage of the bill in the Rajya Sabha.
The Bill criminalizing instant triple talaq may be facing Opposition in certain quarters and muslim women and petitioners in the Supreme Court are all for it.
Interestingly, NDA ally TDP is also opposed the passing of the bill in its present form, according to sources.
