What Issues Will Be Addressed In Parliament’s Monsoon Session?
This will be the first Parliament session being held amid the COVID-19 pandemic as the customary all-party meeting of the government was not held.
The Monsoon Session of the Parliament began today amid unprecedented safety measures for Coronavirus. Ahead of the session, Prime Minister Narendra Modi used his customary address to send a message on the China dispute at the border. “We hope Parliament and all members will unitedly send the message that the nation stands with our soldiers. Our soldiers are standing firm at the borders with a lot of courage, passion and a strong resolve to protect their motherland. They are standing on difficult heights and in a few days, will weather snow.”
He further added, “In the same manner, I am confident the Parliament will send a message, in one voice, that it stands firmly behind soldiers guarding our borders,” said the Prime Minister. The 18-day session, which will be the fourth session of 17th Lok Sabha and 252nd session of Rajya Sabha, will have four sessions for each house each day. The government has listed 23 new legislation for consideration and passage including bills replacing ordinances issued since March when the Parliament was adjourned indefinitely in view of the Coronavirus pandemic.
