Standing Committee on Homes meeting on lockdown, other issues put off

New Delhi: The Parliamentary Standing Committee meeting on the issue of lockdown and other issues pertaining to Ministry of Home Affairs, scheduled to meet on June 3, has been postponed after a majority of the members expressed their inability to attend, source said.

The Home Secretary was schedule to appear and brief the committee on the ongoing lockdown and its impact on the country.

This was supposed to be the first meeting after the announcement of the lockdown.

The Committee chairman, Congress Deputy Leader in Rajya Sabha, Anand Sharma had called the meeting. In April, the move to hold a virtual meet was stalled by the Rajya Sabha Secretariat on the ground that the standing committee meeting can't be held virtually on ground of secrecy.

The principal opposition party, Congress has been demanding parliamentary oversight on the government functioning. This meeting would have paved way for meetings on the other standing committees.

The Centre on Saturday adopted an exit step towards 67-day long nationwide lockdown, declaring that the restriction will be limited to only containment zones upto June 30 and prohibited activities will be opened in a phased manner in areas outside these zones.
