No all-party meeting ahead of Parliament session tomorrow

| @indiablooms | 13 Sep 2020, 11:43 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The traditional all-party meeting, held before the commencement of each Parliament session, has been scrapped ahead of the Monsoon Session beginning on Monday.

The change in the convention, probably a first in two decades, is eyed as an indication of the growing differences between the opposition and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

Parliament was adjourned for an indefinite period in March, days before Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the countrywide lockdown to stem the spread of coronavirus.

This is the first Parliament session since the deadly clash between India and China in Eastern Ladakh which led to the death of 20 Indian soldiers.

The Monsoon Session will have Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha working in separate shifts.

Special seating for MPs has been arranged to ensure distancing.

The Lok Sabha will sit from 9 AM to 1 PM on the first day and from 3 PM to 7 PM till October 1.

The Rajya Sabha will sit from 3 PM to 7 PM the first day and 9 AM to 1 PM the rest of the days. Weekends will be working days.
