NEW DELHI, JULY 21. The Parliamentary Affairs Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad, said today that the Minister for Coal and Mines, Shibu Soren, had written to the Presiding Officers of both Houses of Parliament suggesting that he would be out of station for a while and that his work may either be looked after by the Minister of State or by some other Minister.
A copy of the letter was also sent to Mr. Azad.
Replying to queries from the media on the absence of the Minister from Parliament, Mr. Azad said that during the Parliament session, a Minister could write a letter to the Presiding Officers of both Houses saying that he was going out of station.
"The Minister has only one day in each House during the session and even for this, he can depute either his Minister of State or any other Minister."
