NEW DELHI: The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha secretariats are gearing up for an almost-paperless Monsoon Session of Parliament beginning on September 14.
The secretariats are working out modalities of the two-week-long session which would be held following strict COVID-19 guidelines including mandatory face masks, hand sanitisation, and a six-feet physical distancing, and much more.
In Rajya Sabha looking at the increasing COVID-19 Congress MP, GN Azad said, “The Govt wasted the golden months to stop COVID19. WHO had sounded a warning in Dec 2019. As China is our neighbouring country, we should have been alert first. Congress’s Rahul Gandhi had also alerted that an epidemic was looming over us.”
He remarked that we should have taken care of COVID-19 from the start of December.
