The winter session of Parliament begins on Wednesday, December 7. Meanwhile, the government will try to pass more than a dozen bills and supplementary demands for grants. The opposition party, on the other hand, is gearing up to attack the government on issues like inflation, unemployment, farmers’ problems, alleged misuse of investigative agencies and Centre-State relations. However, on the second day of the session i.e. December 8, the results of Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat Assembly Elections (Assembly Election 2022) will also be out. Its effect will also be seen in Parliament. Earlier, the government has clearly said that the ruling party is ready to discuss all issues in the House. Meanwhile, according to the Lok Sabha Secretariat, Prime Minister Narendra Modi may address the media on Wednesday morning, the first day of the winter session of Parliament.

Ahead of the Parliament session, the government called an all-party meeting on Monday in which house leaders of 31 parties including Congress, Trinamool Congress (TMC), DMK (DMK), BJD, AAP participated. Union Minister Piyush Goyal and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi were also present in this meeting. Presiding over the all-party meeting, Defense Minister and Lok Sabha Deputy Leader Rajnath Singh sought the cooperation of all parties for the smooth functioning of the House.

Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge has called a meeting of like-minded opposition leaders at 9.45 am tomorrow to decide on a strategy on the floor of the House. However, since Rahul Gandhi and several Congress leaders are involved in the ‘Join India Yatra’, there is no possibility of their attending the session. But still Parliament is expected to be turbulent. Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary clearly said that today there are only issues in the country and the opposition wants debate and only debate in the House.

The government, however, plans to introduce 16 new bills in the winter session of Parliament starting December 7, including bills to increase accountability in multi-state cooperatives and reform the electoral process. The National Dental Commission Bill is also likely to be introduced in the next session. Along with this, Bills related to National Nursing Commission, Multi-State Cooperative Societies (Amendment) Bill, 2022 and Cantonment Bill, 2022 are likely to be introduced. The list of bills to be introduced during this period also includes old Grants (Regulation) Bill, Forest (Conservation) Amendment Bill, Coastal Aquaculture Authority (Amendment) Bill etc.
