Parliament session may be extended

New Delhi, Feb 21 : Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath on Friday said the Parliament session might be extended to clear all pending legislations.


"Everything is possible. We will discuss with all political parties and if they agree to extend the session, we will think about it," Nath told reporters.

Meanwhile, the Rajya Sabha adjourned till noon as opposition parties created a ruckus demanding special economic package for seven backward states.

On the last day of the last session of the Parliament before the Lok Sabha polls, the House will take up six anti-corruption bills which were promoted by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi.

"Sources say the government is considering the option of passing an ordinance, or executive order, to clear the bills pushed by the Congress vice president," reported NDTV.

The six bills are - Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill, Whistleblowers Protection Bill, Right of Citizens for Time Bound Delivery of Goods and Services and Grievance Redressal Bill, Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and Officials of Public International Organisations Bill, Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill and Public Procurement Bill, 2012.
