NEW DELHI, June 25 - The Monsoon Session of Parliament would be held from July 18 to August 10, said Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Ananthkumar here today.
The minister was briefing the media after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, chaired by Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
According to sources, the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill, 2016 is going to be listed, but it is not likely to come up for discussion and passage as the JPC report is not likely to be submitted during the ensuing session.
Informing that the Monsoon Session would have 18 working days, Ananthkumar appealed to all political parties to constructively cooperate with the government to make the session a productive one. The legislative business would include passing of six ordinances promulgated during the inter-session period.
The minister said the government would bring several other important Bills, including the Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Third Amendment) Bill, 2017, Muslim Women (Protection of Rights on Marriage) Bill, 2017, Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2016, National Medical Commission Bill, 2017, Rights of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (Second Amendment) Bill, 2017, for consideration and passing in both the Houses of Parliament.
