Parliament winter session likely to begin from December 15

Parliament

This will be a 14-day session.

After long delay, finally the Central government on Friday announced the dates for the Winter Session of Parliament.

"Even when general elections are held, you finish the budget session immediately in the first week of March so that by the time the campaign begins and the elections are notified, Parliament is not on". The CCPA's recommendations will now be forwarded to President Ram Nath Kovind.

Refusing to accept that the government wants to avoid the Parliament sessions before the Gujarat Elections, Union Minister Arun Jaitley stressed that the winter sessions would be conducted in a regular mode.

Ananth Kumar requested political parties to cooperate and make the winter session successful and fruitful.




Kumar alleged that the Congress was levelling allegations out of desperation and frustration as it would be routed in assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.

Three Bills will be taken up in the Winter session to replace three Ordinances. Parliament is considered to be in session once it is formally convened. "Even the winter session has been deferred, altered and broken into parts", Jaitley said.

The letter said, "We seek to draw your attention to the inordinate delay by the government in convening the Winter Session of Parliament without ascribing any justification for doing so".

Asked if the winter session extending into January 2018 would be treated as a new session, he said: "It has already been settled that once the winter session starts and goes into January, it is not the first session (of the year)".
