Early this week, the Congress party stepped up its attack on the delay in convening the Winter Session of Parliament, accusing the government of betraying the Constitutional mandate of subjecting itself to Parliamentary oversight.
The winter session is traditionally convened in the third week of November and lasts until the third week of December.
