Winter session likely at new Parliament building, says Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla

Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla, on Sunday, June 19, said that the winter session of the sabha will likely be in the new Parliament building.

“Our endeavour is to start the winter session in the new building of Parliament and the new building will clearly show the picture of a self-reliant India,” Birla said. “From a technical and security point of view, this new building is far ahead of the old Parliament building. But the old building of Parliament will also remain a part of it.”

In the interview, Om Birla said that the productivity in the house has increased drastically. “With the cooperation of everyone, the productivity of the House has been so high. The house runs till late at night.

Birla said that all parties should also talk to their respective leaders. “From time to time, I also talk to party leaders and tell them that the house should run smoothly and that discipline and decorum should be maintained. With his cooperation, the level of productivity and debate in the House has increased significantly,” he added.

Back in May, the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee had appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to name the new Parliament building after former President APJ Abdul Kalam to send a ‘message’ about the country’s communal harmony.

According to Union Minister of Urban Development Hardeep Singh Puri, the construction of the new Parliament building will be completed by October this year.
