Most political parties have expressed concern about MPs testing Covid-positive and a consensus is emerging that it might be prudent to curtail the ongoing monsoon session of Parliament.

The session, which began on September 14, is scheduled till October 1, with curtailed business hours but working days even on Saturdays and Sundays.

The emerging consensus suggests the session may end anytime next week if the government manages to get through key bills.

At a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee on Saturday, most parties felt it was not advisable to run the House for long.
