Parliament Special Session: A meeting of Floor leaders of the INDIA alliance’s parties is underway at LoP in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge’s office in Parliament House to chalk out the strategy for the Floor of the House, according to ANI reports.
Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi on Sunday stated that the Session will provide 5 sittings spread over a period of 5 days, besides informing that eight legislative items are likely to be taken up during this session.
“Parliamentary journey of 75 years starting from Samvidhan Sabha – achievements, experiences, memories and learnings” will also be discussed.
On Sunday, Vice President Jagdeep Dhankhar hoisted the national flag atop “Gaja Dwar” of the new Parliament building. Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla was also present on the occasion. The Special Session of the Parliament will be held from September 18 to 22.
After weeks of no information about the agenda, the government last week announced an agenda that included bills to be taken up for consideration and a discussion on the “Parliamentary journey of 75 years starting from Samvidhan Sabha – achievements, experiences, memories and learnings”.
Earlier, on Sunday, Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Joshi requested all parties for active cooperation and support for the smooth functioning of the two Houses of Parliament.
After the conclusion of the function in the Central Hall, both Houses will meet in their respective Chambers in the New Parliament House.
The announcement of the Special Session came as a surprise in political circles with the parties gearing up for assembly polls in five states later this year.
