New Delhi:  Lok Sabha was adjourned sine die, bringing the month-long Budget session to an end on Thursday. Previously, the second part of the Budget Session, which began on March 8, was scheduled to conclude on April 8. However, many members of Parliament approached and urged Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahlad Joshi and Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla to end the session earlier so that they could focus on the ongoing election campaigns of 5 Assemblies.

Rajya Sabha is also likely to be adjourned sine die later on Thursday. Several MPs at the behest of their parties had earlier approached Chairman of Rajya Sabha M Venkaiah Naidu in addition to Joshi and Birla, to adjourn the session ahead of upcoming elections.

Trinamool Congress leaders Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Derek O’Brien had written respectively to the Lok Sabha Speaker and the Rajya Sabha Chairman, requesting them to adjourn the proceedings.

The first part of the Budget Session commenced with the address of President Ram Nath Kovind on January 29 and concluded on February 29.
