Winter Session of Parliament

The month-long Winter Session of Parliament is expected to begin on November 22 and continue till December 20.

The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, at a meeting chaired by defence minister AK Antony, on Thursday decided to recommend to President Pranab Mukherjee to convene the Winter Session from November 22, officials said.

The session will continue till December 20.

This will be the first session since Trinamool Congress, which was a partner of the ruling United Progressive Alliance, walked out of the government protesting the diesel price hike and unveiling of a series of reform measures like allowing Foreign Direct Investment in the retail sector.

Parliament will also meet against the backdrop of scathing attack on the government by the Opposition parties over the controversial decisions.

Main opposition BJP has on several ocassions said that the UPA government would not last beyond the Winter Session.
