Coronavirus pandemic is spreading havoc in the country. So far, more than 1.25 lakh cases have been reported. Meanwhile, the opposition’s demand for a virtual meeting of parliamentary committees is likely to be rejected. According to sources, the search for a secure platform for a virtual meeting of parliamentary committees is a disappointment. It is important to maintain confidentiality in the meeting of parliamentary committees. In such a situation, there is a danger of leaking sensitive information from unsafe platforms. 

According to sources, now the rail and air services are being restored, in such a situation, the members of parliamentary committees will not face any problem in traffic. Meetings can be started from June 1. Several opposition MPs and chairpersons of parliamentary committees demanded a virtual meeting. Among those making the demand were others including Bharthari Mehtab, Shashi Tharoor, Jairam Ramesh, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury. 

Today, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla and Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu will have a third meeting on the same issue. A committee of general secretaries of both houses was formed.
