New Delhi, Oct 20 (UNI) The CPI(M) today opposed a suggestion that the sittings of the extended session of Parliament be cut to October 24 and re-convened on December eight, saying in the fitness of things it be instead adjourned sine die now and a full-fledged Winter Session take place in the first week of December.
''Even though it is not a concrete decision, we have information that a suggestion has come forward to the government that the session sittings be cut on Friday owing to festivals -- Diwali, Chhat and Dhanteras and the assembly polls in five states,'' CPI(M) Polit Bureau member and Rajya Sabha MP Sitaram Yechury told newspersons here.
Mr Yechury's opposition was obviously in reaction to the reported seeking of the government's cooperation from the Leader of the Opposition L K Advani for passing two supplementary money bills, one concerning railways and one general.
''We are suggesting to the government that let this session be adjourned sine die this week end. Then the government convene a full fledged Winter session somewhere in the middle of December,'' the CPI(M) leader said.
This, he said, is in the fitness of things, he added.
