No plan as of now to curtail winter session of parliament: Joshi


PTI, Dec 15, 2021, 6:28 PM IST

There is no plan as of now to curtail the ongoing Winter Session, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said on Wednesday, but added the Opposition should not run away from debate they themselves have sought on vital issues.

Both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were adjourned on Wednesday amid sloganeering by the Opposition over an SIT probe report on the Lakhimpur Kheri violence.

It is strange that the Opposition sought discussion on serious issues such as price rise and on the new Omicron variant of coronavirus, but they ran away at the time of discussion, Joshi told reporters outside Parliament.

It seems the Opposition has nothing to say on these issues, they are just busy in ”spreading rumours” about the curtailment of the session, Joshi said.

”There are no plans to curtail the winter session of parliament as of now,” he said.

Both Budget Session and Monsoon Session of Parliament were curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the Lakhimpur violence has submitted before a court that the killing of the four farmers and a journalist in the October 3 incident, in which Union minister Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish is an accused, was a ”pre-planned conspiracy”.
