New Delhi, Dec 10 (ANI): The second part of the winter session of Parliament adjourned till Thursday as a mark of respect to the former Prime Minister V.P. Singh, who died on November 27.
A meeting of leaders of political parties was convened by Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee ahead of the session this morning to ensure smooth functioning of Parliament.
The session perhaps would be the last one before general elections, which are slated for April-May next year.
The Congress led UPA is on a high after its performance in the recent state assembly polls.
The Congress is set to form the government in three states out of five, which went to polls.
However, the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would be looking to counter the Government on issues such as terror and inflation.
It is anticipated that the government could formalise the establishment of a Federal Investigating Agency (FIA) in the wake of the Mumbai terror attack, which left the nation shocked. A highlight of the ten-day session could be the formalisation of Federal Investigating Agency (FIA) in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks.
With both the sides gearing up for the session, it is believed that it would be a result oriented one. (ANI)
