The monsoon session of the parliament is likely to be held between July and August. The Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) has recommended a monsoon session of the parliament from July 19 to August 13.

Earlier this month, Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla said he believed the monsoon session in the parliament would be held and all preparations had been made for it.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Om Birla said, “Secretariat employees have been vaccinated and 445 members have got themselves inoculated separately. The remaining members and employees will soon be vaccinated. We are constantly trying to increase the productivity of parliament.”

“Even in the last session, we tried to do COVID tests of members. We also insisted that the members get vaccinated. Thankfully the COVID infections are reducing. But, we need to take precautions,” said the Lok Sabha Speaker.

Asked whether the Monsoon Session would be held or not, he had said the ministerial subcommittee will take the final call for the monsoon session.

“The ministerial subcommittee takes the decision of the monsoon session. But I believe the monsoon session will be held. All the preparations have been taken in Lok Sabha for the purpose, emphasized Birla.

The Lok Sabha speaker stressed the need for smooth functioning of the House without disruption and sloganeering.
