The winter session of Parliament is likely to be cut short as most MPs would be busy campaigning for the Gujarat assembly polls to be held in two phases in December.
While a final call is yet to be taken by the cabinet committee on parliamentary affairs (CCPA), two senior government functionaries said the session could be held in November end and may last a week or 10 days. The date of the meeting of the CCPA, headed by home minister Rajnath Singh, has not yet been finalized, they said.
The Gujarat elections will be held on 9 and 14 December and the counting of votes will take place on 18 December, together with Himachal Pradesh, which goes to poll on 9 November. The winter session is usually held from the middle of November till the third week of December. (PTI)
