Winter session of parliament to begin from 15 Dec

Winter Session of Parliament to be held from 15 December

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley while briefing the media had recently told, "It will be a regular winter session and let me clarify, in a democracy, when elections are on, political parties are then addressing the people directly".

The decision to extend the session beyond Christmas will give at least 14 working days to the government to push its agenda.

"CCPA met under the chairmanship of Home Minister Rajnath Singh and proposed that we will have Winter Session from December 15 to January 5", Kumar said. Spanning 22 days, the session will conclude on January 5.
