Special Session of Parliament on Ganesh Chaturthi

While media and many political analysts are kite flying on the agenda of the Special Session of the Indian Parliament, PGurus has learned that the Session convened from Sept 18 to Sept 22 is to mark the change to the newly built Parliament building. According to highly placed officials of Parliament, the five-day session of Members of Parliament (MP) which will convene on Sept 18 at Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha is expected to shift to new Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha halls of the new Parliament building from September 19, the auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The agenda of the Session is on the debates in the general nature of the progress of India, focusing on the development agenda of Narendra Modi-led government, facing elections in a few months.

Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayak Chaturthi or Ganeshotsav, is a Hindu festival commemorating the birth of the Hindu God Lord Ganesha. Hindus start auspicious things and new ventures on Ganesh Chaturthi. “Special Session of Parliament (13th Session of 17th Lok Sabha and 261st Session of Rajya Sabha) is being called from 18th to 22nd September having 5 sittings. Amid Amrit Kaal looking forward to have fruitful discussions and debate in Parliament,” said Parliament Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi, without revealing the agenda of the meeting.

Though the government is tightlipped on the agenda (why hiding the agenda is another question) of the debates during the five-day-long Special Session, highly placed officials say that the debates will focus on the development of India that happened after the 75 years of Independence of the Country. It is learned that government and ruling party MPs will focus the debates on the “developments” that happened in India during the past 10-year rule of the Narendra Modi government, which is going to face elections in May 2024.

G20 countries Speakers’ meeting is going to be convened in the new Parliament building on October 13 and 14. This event was declared a few months ago by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla. Due to this event happening in the new Parliament building, there was a general consensus among the top leaders in government that the first function in the new building should be a Special Session of Parliament.

Construction of the Indian Parliament building started in mid-2019 and was expected to be open and convene a Special Session on August 15, 2022, the 75th Independence Day. However, the construction was delayed due to many factors including the Lockdown from 2020 to 2021 due to Covid pandemic. Though the new Parliament building was inaugurated in May 2023, the Session could not convene due to logistical problems.
