Winter session of Parliament to start from today
New Delhi: The winter session of Parliament beginning today is likely to be stormy with the government planning to push an ambitious economic agenda undeterred by resistance from a section of the opposition. It will conclude on December 23 during which the government may try to push many key legislations.
The session will focus on the much-delayed Insurance Bill to allow more foreign capital along with the Goods and Service Tax Bill.
It's the second major session after the Narendra Modi-led government came to power in May. The erstwhile parties Janata 'Parivar' (family)have come together on a common platform and have announced plans to follow a joint strategy in both Houses of Parliament.
In order to be more effective in Parliament, JD(U), RJD, JD-S, INLD and the Samajwadi Party had said that they would pool their resources well in Parliament.
Earlier this week in a meeting of Secretaries of various Ministries and Departments with Finance Minister Arun Jaitley it was concluded that 39 bills may be ready for either introduction or consideration in this session being held from November 24 to December 23.
