In the Corona era, preparations are on to start the monsoon session of Parliament starting from the second week of September. The current monsoon session of Parliament will start from the second week of September, but this time the view will be different. It is being told that Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha proceedings will be held on the basis of AlertNet Day in the Parliament session. That is, one day the Lok Sabha will run and the next day the Rajya Sabha will run.
Sources told the news agency, “The monsoon session of Parliament is likely to begin from the second week of September and the sessions of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will be held on the basis of Alternate Day, i.e. the Lok Sabha one day and the Rajya Sabha the next day.” The move is aimed at maintaining social distancing and preventing the spread of Kovid-19.
Sources said that the two Houses will not meet virtually, but physically. The proceedings of the Lok Sabha are likely to run from Lok Sabha Hall, Rajya Sabha Hall and Central Hall. While the proceedings of Rajya Sabha will be held in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha hall and lobby. However, a final decision has not yet been made about the seating arrangement.
The source said that the monsoon session of Parliament is likely to last four weeks. Hand sanitizers will be provided at every entry and exit point. The budget session of Parliament was postponed due to Corona virus. Under the Indian constitution, there can be no difference of more than six months between the end of one parliament session and the beginning of the next. Therefore, 23 September is the last date for Parliament to start the monsoon session. Let us tell you that on March 23, two days before the end of the budget session, the nationwide lockdown of 68 days was announced.
However, before that there was a proposal that both houses be run from Central Hall. The Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha were run every day in two shifts of four hours each. The first shift was for the Lok Sabha and the second shift was for the proceedings of the Rajya Sabha. But this could not happen keeping in mind the cleanliness.
