Parliament Gears Up for Special Session Amidst Controversy

A special parliamentary session has been scheduled from September 18 to 22, spanning five meetings, as disclosed by Hon’ble, the Union Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi, on Thursday.

This special session is specially designated in anticipation of more productive conversations and discussions during the Amrit Kaal, Joshi expressed, “We are looking forward to engaging in debates within the Parliament.” However, the administration has not yet unveiled the particulars of the topics for this special session.

Priyanka Chaturvedi, a Rajya Sabha MP and prominent figure in the Shiv Sena (UBT) party, voiced her dissatisfaction regarding the announced session. She labelled the timing “regrettable,” as it coincides with India’s significant Ganesh Chaturthi festival. She also remarked that the decision to convene the unique session “conflicts with the beliefs of the Hindu community.”

Recalling recent parliamentary proceedings, the Monsoon Session unfolded from July 20 to August 11, encompassing 17 gatherings dispersed across 23 days. 

Throughout these sittings, regular interruptions slowed the proceedings, largely linked to the turmoil in Manipur. Notably, opposition leaders presented a motion of no-confidence targeting the governance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his central administration. Though the motion was not successful and it still shows the Modi Government’s perseverance and aim towards the a fast-growing India.
