With no signs of support coming from main opposition Congress, Government had on Wednesday dropped plans for calling a special session of Parliament for passage of GST bill and decided to prorogue both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. “Keeping the political reality in mind, at the meeting of Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs it was decided that we will recommend to the President to prorogue the Monsoon session,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had told reporters after a meeting of the Union Cabinet and CCPA. The decision came after Congress on Wednesday virtually vetoed governments attempts to call a special session for passage of GST bill, making it clear that it would not budge on its three key demands for amending NDAs legislation.
