New Delhi: Former Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, expressing concerns about the special session of parliament scheduled to begin on September 18.
In her letter, she emphasized that the session had been called without consultation with other political parties, leaving them unaware of the agenda. During this special session, Sonia Gandhi also called for discussions on critical issues including the Centre-state relationship, communalism, the Manipur situation, and the border conflict with China.
These developments come amidst recent discussions surrounding the use of “Bharat” instead of “India” in official G20 Summit invitations and references to the Prime Minister as the “Prime Minister of Bharat” in certain documents. Speculation has arisen that the government may present a resolution to change the country’s name during the upcoming five-day special session of parliament.
The special session, scheduled from September 18 to 22, will commence in the old parliament building before transitioning to the new one on September 19. However, the absence of a published agenda for the session has added to the uncertainty surrounding its proceedings. It remains to be seen how these issues will unfold during this unique parliamentary session.
