Govt Calls For Special Session Of Parliament In September, Opposition Criticises Timing

The government is planning for a “special session of Parliament” between 18 and 22 September, said Union Minister Pralhad Joshi through his X handle. There will be total five sittings.

He said, “Amid Amrit Kaal, looking forward to having a fruitful discussion and debate in Parliament”.

However, it is still not clear what issues will be covered.

It is being guessed that during the special session the process of shifting from old to new Parliament building will begin.

It is also expected that there will not be a joint session of Lok Shabha and the Rajya Sabha.

According to the sources within the government, it is not likely that any bill will be passed during this session nut there may Amrit Kaal celebrations.

Meanwhile, the Opposition has criticized the government’s move as they say that the session timing will clash out with “India’s most important festival of Ganesh Chaturthi”.

“This special session called during India’s most important festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is unfortunate and goes against Hindu sentiments. Surprised at choice of dates!,” said Shiv Sena’s Priyanka Chaturvedi.

While, NCP’s Supriya Sule called for rescheduling of the dates for the same.

“Whilst we all look forward towards meaningful discussions and dialogue, the dates coincide with Ganpati Festival, a major festival in Maharashtra. Urging the Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister to take the above into consideration,” said Ms Sule taking to her X handle.
