A meeting of all parties the day before a special session, the Opposition digs into the agenda

New Dehi - The Opposition leader has provided a list of past special Parliament sessions in which the agenda was disclosed. Opposition leaders are intensifying their criticism of the central government for not revealing the agenda for the upcoming special Parliament session. This criticism follows the announcement by Union parliamentary affairs minister Prahlad Joshi of an all-party meeting scheduled to take place one day before the special session.

In anticipation of the Parliament session beginning on the 18th of this month, an all-party floor leaders meeting has been scheduled for the 17th at 4:30 pm. Invitations for this meeting have been sent to concerned leaders via email, with official letters to follow, as stated by the Union minister's communication on social media (formerly Twitter).

The special session is slated to run from September 18th to the 22nd.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh has mocked the central government for not disclosing the agenda for the upcoming session. He has compiled a list of previous special sessions where the agenda was disclosed in advance.

"The five-day Special Session of Parliament is just five days away, and no one, except perhaps a select few, is aware of the agenda. On all previous occasions when Special Sessions or Special Sittings were held, the list of business was made public beforehand," he expressed on the same platform (X).

Taking a swipe at the Centre, Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Derek O'Brien remarked that with only two working days remaining before the special session begins, the government has yet to reveal the agenda.

"With just TWO working days left before the #SpecialParliamentSession starts, there is still no word on the agenda. Only TWO individuals seem to be privy to it! And we continue to call ourselves a parliamentary democracy," he commented.

As previously reported, the session will commence in the old Parliament building and will shift to the new building a day later, coinciding with Ganesh Chaturthi.
