No All-Party Meet Before Parliament Session, Key Panel Meets To Set Agenda -Sunil Prabhu
Parliament Monsoon Session: The session will have Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha working in separate shifts and there will be special seating for MPs to ensure distancing.
New Delhi: The traditional all-party meet before a parliament session has been scrapped for the monsoon session, which begins tomorrow. The departure from convention - probably a first in two decades -- is seen as indication of the growing differences between the opposition and Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla.
The Speaker has called a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee, which began at 11 am today, to discuss the agenda for the session that concludes on October 1. Among those attending the meeting are Union Minister Pralhad Joshi, BJP's Arjun Ram Meghwal, Congress's Adhir Ranjan Choudhury, AIMIM's Asaduddin Owaisi.
In today's meeting, issues such as the abolition of Question Hour and the curtailing of Zero Hour are likely to be raised. The government has stood firm on its decision of not resuming the Question Hour, which has generated much resentment among the opposition MPs.
