    Speaking to media ahead of the Budget Session, Kharge said "Since there are only 4 days for discussion, one day would go by President's speech and discussion surrounding it; whereas, on one day budget would be presented. From where will time for discussions come?"

    Speaking about PM Modi's request to various parties to pass Triple Talaq bill, during his speech ahead of the Budget Session, he said "There is no time for discussion on Triple Talaq". "Government seems to be in a mood for elections" he added.

    At the all party meeting held on Sunday both Congress and Trinamool Congress pointing out that there are only four working days in this session.

    The Opposition parties also raised the issue of the January 12 press conference by four senior-most judges of Supreme Court alleging selective allotment of cases to preferred benches.

    The Budget session of the parliament began on Monday January 209 and is set to end on February 9. The budget would be presented on February 1.
