    Special Session of Parliament Live Updates (September 18): Prime Minister Narendra Modi is chairing a Union Cabinet meeting in the Parliament House Annexe after the conclusion of the first day of the special session. Earlier in the day, PM Modi said that this Parliament session may be short in duration but is big on occasion, and is of “historic decisions”.

    While the agenda of the meeting has been kept under wraps, it has been widely speculated that the women’s bill could be introduced and passed in this special session, ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. Earlier in the day, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Mallikarjun Kharge urged the government to usher in the Women’s Reservation Bill.

    The five-day special session of the Parliament began with an address by PM Modi in the Lok Sabha. He talked about significant historical events that have taken place in the old premises of the Parliament, and said that even though House proceedings will move to the New Parliament building tomorrow, the old building will continue to inspire generations. During his speech, Modi referred to the growing representation and contribution of women MPs in the House proceedings. “Around 600 women MPs have enhanced dignity of both Houses,” he said.
