Congress Parliamentary Party Leader Sonia Gandhi is slated to chair a meeting of party’s parliament Strategy group on Tuesday morning. Gandhi is expected to chalk out and finalize the strategy for the ongoing Parliament Session. Sources believed that the party is expected to make a common agenda to coordinate with other opposition parties on the floor.

Congress Senior Leader Anand Sharma speaking to media hints that party may voice up against the ordinance culture.

Sharma, as quoted by ANI, said, ‘Important Bills should be sent to parliament committees before presenting in the house. The government should respect the parliamentary process.

Apart from the party may also discuss the appointment of its Leader in the Lower House. However, sources claimed that the announcement about the name of the Speaker will only be done after the election of Lok Sabha Speaker slated for June 19.

As the Parliamentary Party Leader, Sonia Gandhi has the utmost authority of appointing a Party Leader of the Lower House of the Parliament.

The ongoing parliament session becomes more important with many controversial bills including Triple Talaq Bill is expected to be presented apart from the Union Budget. Being the largest opposition party, Congress is tasked with the responsibility of coordinating with other opposition parties to corner the government on various issues.

In the recently held national polls, Congress won 52 Lok Sabha Seats which is 2 short of 10% strength, to stake a claim for Leader of Opposition.

In the first session of the 17th Lok Sabha that begins from today, the new government plans aims to convert 10 ordinances into law. All those ordinances were approved by the Union Cabinet in February-March this year by the previous government.

Election to elect a new Speaker of the House will be held on June 19th. While the President Ram Nath Kovind will address the joint session of both the houses  Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha –  on 20th June.

The Economic Survey will be released on the 4th of July a day before. While next day, that is on July 5th, new Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will table the full-fledged budget in the House.
