New Delhi: The Budget Session will be “out of focus” and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “gameplan is to make Parliament irrelevant”, alleged the Trinamool Congress on Saturday after the announcement of dates for the Assembly elections to five states.

Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa will be held between February 10 and March 7 in seven phases with the counting of votes on March 10, the Election Commission announced on Saturday.

Parliament’s Budget Session usually begins in the last week of January every year.
