Monsoon session extended to September 6

NEW DELHI, August 26, 2013, DHNS:

Having lost crucial hours due to frequent disruption, the government on Monday decided to extend the monsoon session to allow six more days of sitting beyond August 30 to facilitate passage of key legislation on economic reforms and land acquisitions.

Given the fact that the Lok Sabha could have only 11 sittings in 20 days of functioning till August 24, the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs took the decision to stretch the monsoon session till September 6 at a meeting held in the Parliament House on Monday.

The Rajya Sabha, however, conducted business with better output since the session started on August 5.

Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Congress MPs from Andhra Pradesh were frequently disrupting the Lok Sabha, and the government's floor managers could not contain them. 

Eventually, the Speaker had to name and suspend them for the rest of the session, as the government had to embarrassingly withdraw their motion.
