The Winter Session of the Parliament is set to begin on November 26 and end on December 23.
The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, which met at the Parliament House here, decided the dates of the upcoming Winter Session.
The meeting was chaired by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh.
The winter session will happen in the backdrop of BJP suffering a massive defeat in Bihar, which has further emboldened the Opposition. The session as such is expected to begin at a stormy note during which the Opposition is likely to corner the government on issues like return of awards by writers and filmmakers, Dadri beef lynching and related incidents.
The bruising defeat in Bihar, coming after 15 months of NDA rule at the Centre, is also likely to seriously dent the government’s political authority in Parliament.
With the last session a virtual washout, the government is keen to take up important legislations to be passed in Parliament like GST bill, land bill, the real estate regulation and development bill and negotiable instruments arbitration bill.
