ANI Photo | “BJP, PM Modi are not confident of facing elections…”: CPI leader D Raja

Communist Party of India (CPI) General Secretary D Raja on Friday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are fearful of the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) bloc, adding that the ruling party lacks confidence in facing the upcoming elections.
Speaking to ANI, D Raja said, “One thing is very clear, BJP and PM Modi are desperate and they are not confident of facing the elections. After seeing the INDIA alliance they are scared.”
CPI leader Raja said that Parliament has become increasingly redundant since the BJP came to power at the Centre.  
“There are many speculations. The government has called a special session of the Parliament. What are the issues? What is going to be the agenda? Nobody knows. But there are speculations. But we will face those speculations. Because ever since BJP came to power, Parliament is becoming increasingly redundant,” he said. 
Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi on Thursday informed that a five-day special session of Parliament from September 18 to 22. The agenda for this special session, however, was not revealed.
“Special Session of Parliament (13th Session of 17th Lok Sabha and 261st Session of Rajya Sabha) is being called from 18th to 22nd September having 5 sittings. Amid Amrit Kaal looking forward to have fruitful discussions and debate in Parliament,” Joshi said.  
Soon after the announcement was made speculations on the agenda for the five-day session began to circulate. One of the agenda items speculated upon was dissolving the current Parliament and announcement of early Lok Sabha elections.
This decision, however, can be brought about by a cabinet decision and therefore convening a special sitting of Parliament if early Lok Sabha elections was indeed the agenda, was not a requirement.
After the Modi government called for a “special session of Parliament” to be held from September 18 to 22, the opposition has questioned the timing of the five-day special session of parliament called by the government, and said that it is an indicator of a ‘little panic’.(ANI)
