Parliament Winter session to resume from Feb 5th

The Winter Session of Parliament will resume from February 5 and will end on February 21. This was stated by the Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath.

The session will be a continuation of the Winter Session that was adjourned sine die in December last year, but not prorogued.

The session will be held to pass the Vote on Account.

Earlier this month, Nath told reporters that the session will be for 15 days or ten sittings. He, however, said the government is yet to take a decision on the business agenda for the session.

Nath revealed that the government also plans to pass some crucial anti-corruption legislations which are a part of the Congress and the UPA Government’s agenda to address the issue of corruption.

He said these bills will come up for discussion and possible passage in the session.

He, however, rejected the view that the UPA-II Government wants to pass these bills in a bid to acquire some political mileage before and during the 2014 general elections.

Among the bills that are expected to be tabled in this session are the AP State Reorganization Act 2013, The Whistleblowers Protection Bill, Judicial Accountability Bill, Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, Citizens Charter Bill, Timely Delivery of Services Bill and Public Procurement Bill.
