Parliament Special Session Live Updates: PM Modi To Address Lok Sabha on Day 1

A five-day special session of Parliament is all set to begin today to commemorate the 75-year journey of the Parliament. Discussions about the development of India's parliamentary democracy are on the agenda. Eight proposals in all have been scheduled for discussion and approval in this session.
