NEW DELHI: Ahead of the Parliament session starting on Monday, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has called an all-party meeting on April 24 to discuss ways to hold smooth functioning of the house.
The Session is likely to be a stormy one as the Opposition and the Treasury Benches are set to clash on several issues. If the BJP rakes up the Ishrat Jahan case, the Congress and the Left will target the government on the imposition of President’s rule in Uttarakhand. The Session, which commences on April 25, is in fact the second part of the Budget Session, but since both the Houses were prorogued after the first part of it beginning February 23 and coming to an end on March 16, this will be a new session.
The Speaker is likely to discuss the demands of the Opposition and the legislative agenda to be listed by the government.
