Why a special session of the parliament?

Why a special session of the parliament?

The central government has convened a special session of the parliament for five days from September 18 to September 22. Parliamentary Affairs Minister Prahalad Joshi disclosed this information.
He has said that there would be five sessions in this series of meetings and he hoped that it would be meaningful. However, the minister did not give details about the topics to be discussed in this special meeting.It is true that the government is planning to pass some important bills in this session.
Long-delayed bills including 33% reservation for women may be discussed. Apart from that, there are reports in the media that the bill on 'One Nation, One Election' may be introduced in this session.
The G20 summit will be held in Delhi on September 9 and 10. Parliament meets immediately after this conference. In that context, it is considered that this meeting will be an opportunity for the government to talk about its achievements like hosting the world conference and the success of Chandrayaan 3.
As a similar special session was convened in 1997 to mark the completion of 50 years of Independence, there are expectations that a similar special session may be held at the completion of 75 years.
Considering the domestic and foreign political environment, the BJP government will try to use this meeting as an opportunity to strengthen the image of the government.Several opposition parties have criticized the convening of the special session. 
The opposition parties are saying that this meeting has been convened as a reaction to the 'INDIA' alliance meeting in Mumbai.Congress alleges that the government is holding this special session to avoid holding the winter session. 
The Congress has criticized the BJP for planning to hold the parliamentary elections along with the upcoming five state elections and that the special session was convened to divert attention from businessman GautamAdani's.Also, the timing of the special session is under discussion. When the date for the special session was announced, Shiv Sena Member of Parliament PriyankaChaturvedi, tweeted, “Conducting the meeting on VinayagarChaturthi day is against the sentiments of Hindu people. I am shocked that the government has chosen these dates,” he had posted.Similarly, Nationalist Congress Party Member of Parliament SupriyaChule said, “The dates of the special session should be changed and we all want meaningful discussions”. He also emphasized that since the meeting is being held on VinayagarChaturthi, I request to change it.
It is also noteworthy that the special meeting has been convened at the time of the third meeting of the INDIA alliance.
A special session of Parliament is going to be held despite the criticism. At least in this meeting, there should be healthy discussion and it should be able to proceed without acrimony. Many things need to be discussed and good decisions taken. This is the expectation of the people of the country.
The question is whether this will happen!
