Scheduled to conduct 17 sittings from December 7 till the concluding day of the Winter Session on December 29, both the Houses of Parliament were adjourned sine die on Friday after having 13 sessions in the last 17 days.
Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla told media that the session went smooth. “I tried to give adequate time to everyone. Parliamentarians have taken the pledge to fight social evils. I wish there will be more awareness against drugs. We will take such issues and will have a debate on it. Many important bills were passed,” he said.
Amid accusations by the Opposition that the government did not let the debate on the Indian and Chinese troops’ clash along the Line of Actual Control in Arunachal’s Tawang, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs Pralhad Joshi said it was only after the opposition parties demanded in the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) that the session was curtailed.
“BACs of both Houses took cognizance of the demand and sentiments of MPs across party lines for Christmas and Year End celebrations,” Joshi said.
