The 14-day session will commence a day after polling for the Gujarat Assembly elections concludes. The House will not meet on two days, December 24 and 25.
The party will decide which important issues need to be raised during the session. “Will decide on issues to be raised; there are issues like GST, demonetisation, J&K, terrorism and Hafiz Saeed set free by Pakistan court. Will raise important issues.
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had previously confirmed that the government will ensure the session does not overlap with the election dates. Accused the government of “shying away” from Parliament due to the polls to “hide its corruption and failures”. The Opposition party had also pointed out that the Winter Session had not been delayed in 2012, when Assembly elections were held in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh.
