Winter Session Parliament: Will It Be a ‘Fruitful’ session or a ‘Hungama’

After Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his hope of having a fruitful and result-oriented winter session on Monday, many leaders have came forward saying, “the session will witness a lot of hungama.”

On Monday, Modi said, “It was because of the positive role by the opposition that good work (in parliament) could be done in the last session.” However, Janata Dal (United) lawmaker KC Tyagi has reportedly said that they, along with parties such as Trinamool, CPM and others will oppose the Insurance Bill. He said, “This session will witness a lot of hungama.”

Meanwhile, Modi said, “The people have given the responsibility to run the government but those who sit in parliament have been tasked with running the country.” He expressed his hope, “I hope the session of parliament is fruitful and result-oriented.”

According to a news report, Tyagi said, all the parties belonging to the Janata Parivar – Lalu Prasad Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal, Mulayam Singh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party, Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal (United) and Janata Dal (Secular) of HD Deve Gowda – “will be on a common platform.”

In the session, the chance of bringing in the issue of black money for discussion is likely to be high as Trinamool Congress had alleged BJP had spent black money for their elections. The MNERGA project, which was approved by the UPA government was rejected by the present government, will also be discussed as per sources.

Meanwhile, during the all party meeting which was held on Sunday, they were protest from the Trinamool and Samajwadi Party, where Trinamool Congress President Mamata Banerjee had declared a boycott of the meeting. However, after the all-party meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said, “The PM hoped that this session will also function very well like the Budget Session.” He added that Modi has said that the government is ready to take up all issues.

Amid, Naidu has also said that he thinks all parties would “understand the mood of the nation and the spirit of the mandate of the people and cooperate with the government.”

There are about 37 bills including Insurance Laws Amendment Bill and GST bills, for the consideration of the two Houses for the winter session.
