Parliament's Winter Session: From December 15, 2017 to January 5, 2018

President Ram Nath Kovind

This could fail to relent the Opposition which has been alleging that the government wants to "run away" from facing the heat on key issues during Gujarat polls, which end on December 14, a day before the session commences now. December 25, which falls on Monday and December 26 will be holidays on account of Christmas.

The government will convene the Winter Session of Parliament from 15 December, a day after the second phase of the Gujarat assembly elections, the Committee on Parliamentary Affairs (CCPA) said on Friday.

Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley while briefing the media had recently told, "It will be a regular winter session and let me clarify, in a democracy, when elections are on, political parties are then addressing the people directly. We expect that we will have attendance on all 14 days, including the New Year's day", the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said.
