After the Mahagathbandhan’s resounding victory in the Bihar assembly elections, the focus is now going shift to Delhi as the dates for the winter session of the parliament are out. The session is going to be held from 26 November to 23 December 2015. The decision was taken by the Cabinet Committee on parliamentary affairs, chaired by union home minister Rajnath Singh.
The BJP is now faced with a united opposition and the ensuing parliament session will be gruelling for the Modi government. Nitish Kumar is also all set to focus on dislodging the NDA government at the Centre led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
A few issues to be discussed during the sessions, include, goods and services tax (GST), labour law changes, and land acquisition law amendments. The functioning of the Modi government is likely to be put under the scanner too.
NDA leaders have been urging that the top leaders of BJP will have to reach out to opposition parties to ensure smooth functioning of the Parliament during the winter session. A senior NDA leader said, “If the government fails to reach out to the opposition, the winter session will not get many important bills passed which is not a good sign.”
