Congress and other opposition parties has criticised the government for not revealing the agenda of the special session of Parliament. Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh posted on X ” Today is September 13. The five-day special session of Parliament will commence five days from now and nobody — barring One Man (ok, perhaps the Other One too) — has any sense of the agenda.”
Derek O’Brien, Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP also took a dig at the government, saying there was still no word on the agenda of the special session of Parliament. He wrote on x, ” “Two working days to go before the Special Parliament Session begins and still not a word on the agenda. Only two people know! And we still call ourselves a parliamentary democracy.”
An important meeting is also being held at the house of Defence Minister Rajnath Singh regarding the special session of Parliament. In this meeting, there can be discussion regarding the agenda in the special session. All the Union Ministers including Home Minister Amit Shah, Anurag Thakur, Ashwini Vaishnaw are involved in this meeting. According to sources, the special session will start in the old building of Parliament and will continue in the new building on September 19.
This will be the first session to be held in the new Parliament House. PM Modi inaugurated the new building on 28 May. During the upcoming session, the government may bring a proposal to change the name of India to Bharat. The Constitution of India currently refers to the country as “India, i.e. Bharat…”, but there are growing calls to amend it to simply “Bharat”.
