NDA floor leaders to discuss strategy on Thursday

New Delhi: NDA floor leaders from both Houses will meet on Thursday, the last day of the Monsoon session,

To discuss their strategy to clear important pending legislative business including the GST bill.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu has convened the meeting tomorrow morning.

The meeting will be held after the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs meets early tomorrow to take a call on convening a special session of Parliament to push for the passage of the GST Bill.

There is a speculation that the government may call a short special session of both Houses of Parliament to pass the GST Bill, if it is not passed tomorrow, government sources said.

The CCPA meeting is also significant as the land ordinance issued for the third time last month will expire on August 31 and if the government wants to re-issue it for a record fourth time to “maintain continuity”,

one of the Houses will have to be prorogued to keep the ordinance alive as was done after the Budget Session earlier, they said.

The NDA floor leaders will discuss the strategy of the government for tomorrow as well as the future course of action, sources in NDA said.
