Parliament’s monsoon session, which generally begins in mid-July, has been deferred and will now be held from Aug 1, it was announced here Tuesday. “The monsoon session will be held Aug 1 to Sep 8,” Parliamentary Affairs Minister P.K. Bansal told reporters. Asked if the contentious anti-graft Lokpal bill will be introduced during the five-week session, Bansal said: “The government is serious about all business.” The session is expected to be tumultuous as opposition is likely to train its guns on the government over inflation and corruption. The opposition may also raise the draft report of the Comptroller and Auditor General on approving an increase in capital expenditure by RIL for developing gas fields in the Krishna Godavari basin. Apart from the Lokpal bill, two other bills likely to be taken up during the session are the Food Security Bill and the Land Acquisition Bill. The session may also see another attempt to table the women’s reservation bill in the Lok Sabha. Speaker Meira Kumar has convened a meeting of leaders of all political parties Wednesday to discuss the bill, which has been passed by the Rajya Sabha.
