My question is Ganesh Chaturthi which is a very big Hindu festival for India and especially for Maharashtra. In such a situation, why is this anti-Hindu work happening? On what basis has the decision been taken? Why was this date chosen? Saurabh Bhardwaj, a minister in Delhi’s Kejriwal government and leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, said that the central government is strangling democracy. He said, ‘The central government does not take opinion from anyone. Why was the session called? Don’t know anything about it. No one was allowed to speak in the old session.

AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi said that BJP’s idea of ​​one nation one election is unconstitutional. This will affect the basic concept of the constitution.

The first such special midnight session was held on 14–15 August 1972, the silver jubilee year of India’s independence, and on 14–15 August 1947, the eve of India’s independence.

With the calling of a special session of the Parliament by the Modi government, the attention of the opposition parties, which were focused on opposing Modi, has now shifted towards their respective political future. Considering the political situation and time of the country, calling of a special session of the Parliament by the Modi government is such a political step which has the potential to break the cycle created by the opponents. This thing also becomes clear from the reaction expressed by the leaders of the opposition parties.
