The ambitious Central Vista redevelopment project of the Central Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is yet to be completed. In such a situation, the winter session starting from December 7 will run in the old building. Quoting sources, it has been told that the government had set a target to complete the new parliament building before the winter session, but due to incomplete construction work, the winter session will run in the old building only.
According to media reports, several leaders of the central government had claimed after the monsoon session that the winter session would be held in the new building of Parliament. Work on the Central Vista redevelopment project is progressing at a brisk pace since inception. Despite this, the plan to organize the winter session of 2022 in the new building of Parliament could not materialize. Now it is being told that the incomplete works will be completed only by December. Only after this the next session will be held in the new building of the Parliament.
running 24 hours
Work is going on 24 hours on the Central Vista redevelopment project. The civil work of the new building is almost completed, but many works including finishing, electricity fitting are yet to be completed. Apart from this, the work of decoration is also incomplete. In such a situation, it has been said quoting sources that it is not possible to complete these works by December 7, so the winter session cannot be ruled out in the old building.
Even after the completion of the work, the winter session will not be held immediately.
Quoting an official in the media report, it has been told that even if the construction and decoration work of the new Parliament building is completed, it will take another 10 to 15 days. Actually, there will be a need to train the staff for the smooth conduct of the Parliament session. Apart from this, several mock drills are to be done to ensure the security arrangements and to make the new building of Parliament completely safe in terms of security. It may take at least 10 to 15 days to complete this entire process. This is the reason that this time the winter session will not be held in the new building of the Parliament.
There will be 23 meetings in this winter session
The winter session of Parliament will begin from December 7 and continue till December 29. During this there will be 17 meetings in 23 days. Giving this information, Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi said that legislative work and other issues are awaited to be discussed during the session between Amrit Kaal. Looking forward to a constructive debate in the House.
