NEW DELHI: The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs will meet at 10 AM in the Parliament tomorrow to finalise the schedule and agenda of the winter session, said sources on Thursday. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government is being targeted by the Opposition for not declaring the dates of the winter session of the Parliament. 

Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Monday launched scathing attack on Prime Minister Modi over the winter session.

Addressing the Congress Working Committee meeting, Gandhi said, “Modi government in arrogance has cast dark shadow on India’s Parliamentary democracy by sabotaging Winter Session on flimsy grounds. The government is mistaken if it thinks by locking temple of democracy; it'll escape constitutional accountability ahead of elections.” 

Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha and senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad also slammed the government for allegedly shying away from facing questions in the Winter Session ahead of Gujarat assembly elections in December.

Azad said the government was deliberately delaying the session to hide its corruption and failures on the employment and economic fronts.

Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Tuesday hit back at Congress after the latter accused the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of deliberately trying to delay the winter session of Parliament.

He said he was shocked to see Congress' growing affection towards dignity of the Parliament, while taking a jibe at party vice-president Rahul Gandhi's attendance in the Lok Sabha.
