Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rajya Sabha during discussion on 250th session of the Upper House stated that Rajya Sabha should be an active supportive house not a secondary house. "In 2003, Atal ji had remarked that Rajya Sabha may be the second house but it should not be called a secondary house. Today, I agree with the thoughts of Atal ji and add that the Rajya Sabha must be an active supportive house for national development," said PM Modi. The winter session of Parliament commenced on November 18 and will continue till December 13. A total number of 20 sittings will be provided in a span of 26 days, including four Private Members' day.
