New Delhi, January 5
The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) on Tuesday recommended that the Budget Session of Parliament be held from January 29 until April 8 with a recess in between.
The recommendation is to hold the first part of the session from January 29 to February 15 and the post-recess part from March 8 to April 8. The Union Budget is to be presented on February 1.
The CCPA met today under Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. With the recommendations, the stage is set for the sharpening of the Opposition’s offensive against the government on the farmers’ agitation and the delivery of Covid vaccines. There was no winter session in 2020 with the Congress saying it was unprecedented to dispense with the session. — TNS
