New Delhi: With several crucial legislations like the land and black money bills yet to be passed, the Bharatiya Janata Party government on Thursday extended the Budget Session of the Lok Sabha till May 13, when the Rajya Sabha will also conclude its session. The decision was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on parliamentary affairs (CCP) chaired by Rajnath Singh, minister of state for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy said after the meeting.

The government’s move to extend the session did not find favour at the meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) on Wednesday, where even allies like Shiv Sena opposed it. Minister of state for parliamentary affairs Rajiv Pratap Rudy said after the meeting that a number of legislations are pending for passage and hence the CCP has decided to recommend extending the session in Lok Sabha for three more working days till May 13.

 

The CCPA met on Thursday and decided that the session in Lok Sabha should be extended for three more days on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,” he said. The Bills that Rudy named for consideration during the extended period included the controversial Land Bill. Parliamentary affairs minister M. Venkaiah Naidu, at the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting on Wednesday, had already sounded the party MPs that they should be prepared for an extension.
