The Union government is considering to extend the ongoing Parliament session by 10 days, sources said on Tuesday.
Several lawmakers of the ruling dispensation were unofficially conveyed of such a possibility at the BJP parliamentary party meeting.
Asked about the likelihood of the session's extension, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi told reporters after the meeting, "There is a possibility of this. You will be officially conveyed when a decision is taken."
If the session is extended by 10 sittings, then it will be extended by two weeks.
