Parliament Winter Session to start from Nov 26

New Delhi,November 10:The winter session of the parliament will commence on 26th November and conclude on 23rd December. 

To honour the architect of Indian constitution Dr B.R. Ambedkar, it has been decided to have a sitting of Parliament on the first two days of the session to commemorate the adoption of the Indian Constitution on November 26, 1949. 

Wary of the surcharged political atmosphere, govt has made it clear that politics apart, the main focus and function of parliament should not be forgotten by all parties. 

There are many crucial bills that the govt wants to concentrate in the upcoming session. 

These include Goods and Services Tax Bill, The land acquisition bill, The prevention of corruption bill, the Lokpal and lokayukta bill, Whistleblowers Protection Act , the real estate bill, the factories amendment bill, the juvenile justice care and protection of children bill. 

These are crucial legislations that the government would want to get passed. 

The government statement notwithstanding, a resurgent opposition is already showing scant regard for the appeals and rational calls for constructive work in parliament. 

But BJP and allies made it clear that work and not protests and disruption should take centrestage during the session.
