New Delhi: While the NDA has decided that its MPs will not take their salaries as the second part of the Budget Session of Parliament was washed out, the Congress MP Mr Jairam Ramesh has written to the Chairman of the Rajya Sabha requesting a special session.

The Congress MP requested  a special two-week session in May-June to pass important legislation and facilitate debate and discussion. Mr. Ramesh's suggestion came after the Congress proposed to the government for a short sitting of both the Houses of Parliament before the monsoon session, which usually starts in July, to discuss issues of national importance.

 

"Why don't you try and persuade the government to convene a special two-week session in late May or early June to both pass important legislations and also have debate and discussion on burning political, economic and social issues?" he said in the letter. He, however, made it clear that his suggestion was "purely in my personal capacity".
