Parliament Winter Session 2022: Preparations for the winter session of Parliament have started. This time the winter session of Parliament is going to start with some delay. The session will start from 7th December. Earlier, the Government (GOI) and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla have called all-party meetings.
The central government has called an all-party meeting on December 5, while on the next day i.e. on December 6, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla has invited all parties for the meeting. The winter session of Parliament usually starts from the third week of November, but this time due to the elections in Himachal-Gujarat, the time of the session has shifted further. It is believed because the government has not made any official announcement regarding this.
Will the winter session be held in Central Vista or not?
The session of Parliament will start from December 7 and continue till December 29. The new Parliament House (Central Vista) is also to be inaugurated. If sources are to be believed, the Central Vista, which is being built at a cost of about Rs 1,200 crore, can be inaugurated symbolically in the first week of December. The Modi government’s effort was to complete the Central Vista construction before the winter session, but some works took longer than the scheduled time. It is being told that the winter session will be held in the old building only.
According to sources, it will also take time to train the employees according to the new building. There is a possibility that next year’s budget session can be held in the new building. On November 19, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi had informed by tweeting that out of 23 days of the winter session of Parliament starting from December 7 till December 29, there would be 17 days as working days.
