Parl session ends ahead of schedule

The Winter session of Parliament concluded on Friday, six days ahead of schedule, with opposition members forcing repeated adjournments in the final days over their demand for a discussion on the border issue with China.
The session began on December 7 and was originally scheduled to end on December 29. However, members requested the government and the presiding officers of both the House to end the proceedings early citing the festive season.
In both the Houses, opposition members pressed for discussion on the border issue with China, which was turned down by presiding officers.
In Lok Sabha, Speaker Om Birla said the productivity of the House was 97 per cent. In Rajya Sabha, Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar said the productivity of the House was 102 per cent.
