The government expects to hold the parliament session during the monsoons in July as scheduled: Minister Joshi | India News


NEW DELHI: The government is hopeful that the monsoon session of parliament will begin its normal hours in July, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said on Tuesday amid the second wave of Covid-19.
Since the pandemic began, three sessions of Parliament have been shortened and last year’s winter session had to be canceled.
Last year, the Monsoon Session, which usually begins in July, had started in September.
“I am hopeful that the session of Parliament will take place according to its normal schedule starting in July,” Joshi told PTI.
The sources said that the modalities of holding this year’s Monsoon Session are still being discussed.
The Parliamentary Standing Committee meetings are also expected to resume from the third week of June, according to sources.
Authorities are confident of holding the session in July as most MPs, staff members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha secretariats and other stakeholders have received at least one dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
