Session ended in deference to wishes of parties: Ravi

Neena Vyas

NEW DELHI: The second part of the fourteenth Parliament session came to an end here on Friday with both the Houses being adjourned “till December 10.”

The implication was clear – the December session would be “in continuation” of the session that ended on Friday.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Vayalar Ravi said that the length of the parliamentary session starting on December 10 would be decided later by the Cabinet.

He said the session was adjourned on Friday to December 10 “after discussion with political parties and keeping in mind holidays for Deepavali and the Assembly election schedule.”

Later his Ministerial colleague Pawan Kumar Bansal elaborated to say that the government would have, as announced earlier, continued this session till November 21 and could have called a short winter session in the month of December. “We kept the views expressed by other political parties in mind and decided to adjourn Parliament accommodating the views of other parties.”

Asked whether the government was afraid to face a no confidence vote and had therefore decided not to convene a fresh session, Mr. Ravi asserted that the government has a majority which has been demonstrated and “there is no problem” on that score.
