No winter session of Parliament in 2017

There will be no winter session of Parliament this year. The BJP does not want to disturb its MPs and Union Ministers from the campaign trail in Gujarat. But the Congress party insists that there should be a winter session.

There were precedents during UPA regime also and the Manmohan Singh government has skipped Parliament sessions. The final decision on this will be taken by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the winter session if it is indeed held will be for 10 days after the first phase of polls in Gujarat. However you look at it, the winter session will be a hungama session.
