The first part of the session will have 10 sittings, while the second part will have 19 sittings.
Meanwhile, Parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi and Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu will chair separate meetings with floor leaders of political parties today to ensure smooth functioning of the Houses during the session.
Meanwhile, during the Budget session, the Opposition is likely to raise the Pegasus spyware issue, border row with China as well as the farmers’ issue besides others.

The government had denied all charges of quote unquote ‘spying’ in a statement in Parliament in 2021.
