Parliament's monsoon session adjourned 4 days ahead of schedule

New Delhi/IBNS: The monsoon session of Parliament was adjourned indefinitely on Monday, four days ahead of schedule. 

Both houses were adjourned sine die this afternoon.

This was the seventh time the parliament was adjourned ahead of the due date but according to media reports, most of the legislative agenda has been completed.

While Muharram is on Aug 9, Raksha Bandhan will be observed on Aug 1, two days when the House will not meet. Ahead of the festivals, the MPs wanted to return to their constituencies.

With most of the legislative agenda completed, it was agreed to meet the members' demand to curtail the session, media reports said.

Business, however, was effectively conducted for only one of the four weeks parliament was supposed to be in session.

No business could be conducted in the first two weeks due to the ruckus over opposition demands for a discussion on price rise.

Trinamool Congress MP Derek O'Brien has hit out at the government over the decision.

"This is the seventh consecutive time parliament session has been cut short. Stop mocking #Parliament. We will fight for its sanctity and prevent PM Narendra Modi and Amit Shah from turning this great institution into the Gujarat Gymkhana," O'Brien tweeted.
