New Delhi: The Budget session of Parliament ended on Saturday as both the Houses of Parliament (Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha ) were adjourned sine die.

The Budget session was the last time the 17th Lok Sabha met before the election.

The session began on January 31 and ended on February 9, but it was extended by a day.

Addressing the last session of the 17th Lok Sabha, Speaker Om Birla said the house passed 222 bills in the last five years.

On the last day of the session, the House discussed the construction of the Ram Temple and Pran Pratishta in Ayodhya, following which a resolution was also passed.

Making closing remarks on the concluding day of the 17th season, Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar said in the “short but important session”, the house sat for nine days dealing with 116 issues of public importance alongside answering 90 starred and 960 unstarred questions of parliamentarians.

“Overall productivity during the session stood at an impressive figure of 137 percent,” he said.

Dhankhar said, "We have come to the close of the 263rd session of Rajya Sabha. It is the last session before we go for the Lok Sabha election, a true festival of democracy in the mother of democracy.”
