The monsoon session of Parliament is likely to begin from the third week of July and will probably conclude on August 10, according to media reports. The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs will finalise the dates in next few days. The meeting will be chaired by Union minister Rajnath Singh.
According to reports, the dates that have been proposed to the committee include July 17 and July 20. The committee will now take a call on the date in the meeting.
Important bills to be discussed
Important economic bills like the National Financial Information Registry (NFIR), insolvency, data protection, and others bills are to be discussed in the house in this session, said sources.
Reports said that some work related to the new parliament building is still pending and that if the pending work is completed in the next few days before the commencement of session, the monsoon session might be held in the new Parliament building which was inaugurated on May 28 by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Delhi ordinance issue
The house may see a stormy session as the Delhi ordinance issue will be brought up for discussion. The bill that will be tabled to replace Union government's ordinance will give more powers to Lieutenant Governor. The AAP and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has been protesting against the Centre's ordinance and meeting opposition leaders for garnering support in the showdown with BJP led NDA on the issue. Congress had earlier said that it would decide on whether to support AAP on the issue or not when the ordinance is discussed in the house.
