Rescheduling Winter Session not unprecedented: Vijay Goel

Will Women's Reservation Bill be passed in Lok Sabha this Winter Session

The Opposition has been claiming that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Centre delayed the Winter Session to avoid raking up key including GST ahead of the Gujarat and Himachal Assembly polls. He requested for cooperation by all parties in order to make the Parliament session a fruitful one.

"Many issues are there that will be discussed, provided the government should take interest and create such an atmosphere, which is up for discussion. Several issues would be raised by the opposition and the government would obviously give its response", he said.

The Congress on Friday said the party is always in favour of constructive suggestions, but is unfortunately stopped by the Opposition, whenever they raise important issues.

"Rather than demanding apology from Prime Minister, they (opposition) should apologise for what they have done". Giving the details of the proceedings of the session, he added that 25 Bills are listed in the Lok Sabha and 39 Bills are pending in the Rajya Sabha which would be taken up and disposed of according to priority.
