On Wednesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be the first speaker in the Lok Sabha, speaking on a motion of gratitude to the President’s address at the start of Parliament’s current Budget Session.

Harish Dwivedi of the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) will introduce the resolution in the Lower House. In the Rajya Sabha, BJP’s Geeta, alias Chandraprabha, will do the same.

The Rajya Sabha will discuss the motion of thanks for 12 hours, while the Union Budget will be debated for 11 hours. On February 8, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is anticipated to respond, followed by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on February 11.

President Ram Nath Kovind spoke to a joint session of both Houses on Monday. President Ram Nath Kovind underlined the government’s accomplishments during the Covid-19 crisis in his address to both Houses on Monday, emphasising the actions taken to combat the pandemic and assist farmers and women.

 The President’s speech, delivered at the commencement of the budget session, usually celebrates the government’s accomplishments in the previous year and discusses future goals and plans.
