The government on Tuesday said it is in talks with the Congress for ensuring smooth passage of the triple talaq Bill in the Rajya Sabha, where it is expected to be taken up on Wednesday.

DMK MP Kanimozhi and NCP leader Majeed Memon also said they were against criminalisation and hence the triple talaq bill in its present form is not acceptable.

However, the Bill was opposed by MPs from RJD, AIMIM, BJD, AIADMK and All India Muslim League, who called it arbitrary in nature.
