This session of Parliament will run till 8 April. However, assembly elections are due in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Kerala, Assam and Puducherry, so a cut in the session is being considered.
Today is the second day of the second phase of the budget session of Parliament on Tuesday. From today onwards, Parliament will function according to its old times. Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will work from 11 am to 6 pm. In the Corona era, the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha were being conducted at different timings. During this time MPs used to sit in both the houses, but now the old situation has been implemented. The two houses will run together. The MPs will sit in their respective houses with some differences.
On Monday, the issue of rising prices of petrol and diesel was raised by the Congress in Parliament. Even today, there can be a ruckus from the opposition. Several opposition MPs, including the Congress, have also moved an adjournment motion for this in Parliament.
The session will run till 8 April
This session will run till 8 April. Although voting is to be held for the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Kerala, Assam and Puducherry from March 27 to April 29, it is being considered to cut this part of the session. The first phase ran from 29 January to 28 February.
According to sources, the leaders of several parties agreed to the budget session cuts. The suggestion has been given for a cut of about two weeks, but a final decision on this can be taken in the meeting of the leaders of the House.
