New Delhi: Parliament, whose current Winter
session has been a virtual washout so far, will have a four-
day holiday from saturday.

The Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha will now meet on December 7
as Monday`s sitting has been canceled and Tuesday is Muharram.

The Houses do not sit on Saturdays and Sundays.
In view of the cancellation of Monday`s sitting, the
session has been extended by one more day and the two Houses
would now sit on December 22.

The session got off to a stormy start with members
raising a variety of issues including Government`s decision to
allow FDI in multi-brand retail.

Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have not transacted any business
for the last nine days.
