Cabinet Committee To Take Decision On Winter Session Schedule: Law Minister

Schedule of Winter Session to be decided by the Committee on Parliamentary Affairs: Law Minister (File)


New Delhi:  Amid suggestions that the winter session of Parliament will be a truncated affair, Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad today said the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs will take a call on the issue.

He also reminded National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah who is a Lok Sabha member, that the Parliament had passed a resolution that the whole of Kashmir, including PoK, is part of India and the decision is applicable on members of Parliament.

At the briefing on the decisions taken by Union Cabinet today, Mr Prasad was asked whether the winter session will become a 'casualty' of the busy schedule of the prime minster and other ministers who are holding door-to-door campaign ahead of the Gujarat polls.

He said the decision on the schedule of the session will be taken by the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs.

"(Parliamentary Affairs Minister) Ananth Kumar is in touch with them (members of the CCPA)... what is the problem if ministers are getting in touch with the people. Ministers of the Narendra Modi government are not elitist who only tweet," he said.
