While Parliamentarian from Mamata Banerjee’s Trinamool Congress (TMC) Dola Sen has given Zero Hour notice in Rajya Sabha over ‘demand to review the decision to privatize Indian ordnance factories.’
The Zero House of the Rajya Sabha refers to the time immediately following the Question Hour, where Parliamentarians can raise issues of great importance without the mandatory 10 days advance notice.
The Session of the Upper House of the Parliament, Rajya Sabha, started from June 20 and was originally slated to continue till July 26. However, the Union Government government extended the ongoing session of the Parliament by 10 days.
The Union government has decided to extend the ongoing Parliament session till August 7, reported PTI quoting official sources on Thursday. The first session of the 17th Lok Sabha began on June 17th, that commenced with the oath-taking ceremony of the newly elected MPs of the Lower House of the Parliament.
Earlier on Thursday, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi placed a proposal regarding extension of the session before the House and Lok Speaker Om Birla then announced that session has been extended till August.
The move is seen as an attempt by the government to get a passage for pending government legislators.
As per the PRS Legislative Research, NGO working and tracking the functioning of Parliament, the productivity of the 17th Lok Sabha is highest for any session in the past 20 years. While PRS Legislative Research Data further claimed that the productivity of the Rajya Sabha is 98%.
