Opposition Manoj Jha Questions Government’s Unusual Parliament Session Timing

Leaders of the opposition bloc in India have raised questions about the government’s decision to convene a parliament session at an unconventional time. Manoj Jha, an MP from the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), challenged the characterization of the session as “special,” emphasizing that the bills being introduced could have waited until the winter session.

“This is not a Special Session at all. Some astrologer must have said something, and the PM believes in all that… Don’t say that you have no agenda. The agenda is very clear. We would like to see what the other agendas are. But there is nothing special about it,” Manoj Jha commented.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, the Leader of Congress in the Lok Sabha, called the government’s actions “absurd” and noted that special sessions are typically called for specific agendas. “We are worried about the real intention of the government,” he added.

Derek O’Brien, an MP from the Trinamool Congress (TMC), suggested that the government seems unsure whether it’s a regular or special session, humorously speculating that it might just be a “photo session.”

Initially, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Joshi had described the session as “special.” However, the government later clarified that it was a regular session, the 13th session of the present Lok Sabha and 261st session of the Rajya Sabha. The Monsoon session was held in July-August, while the Winter session is scheduled for November-December.

The timing and characterization of parliamentary sessions can be a matter of significance in India’s political landscape, as it often reflects the government’s priorities and agenda. The opposition’s skepticism about the government’s intentions underscores the ongoing political dynamics within the country.
