In such a situation, preparations are being finalized for the smooth running of the Parliament session.
To take stock of these preparations, Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla inspected the Parliament House. Birla also inspected the Central Hall apart from the Parliament House complex. During this, Om Birla also gave some necessary instructions to the officials. Birla ordered the officers to ensure proper adherence, especially to the security arrangements and protocols related to Corona.
Om Birla said that like the last two sessions, this time also arrangements have been made for RTPCR test to test corona among MPs, Parliament staff and media persons. However, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha made it clear that the MPs who have been given both doses of the corona vaccine do not need to undergo RTPCR test. The number of such MPs in the Lok Sabha is 311, while there are about 180 such MPs in the Rajya Sabha. According to Om Birla, MPs who have either received a dose of the vaccine or those who have not received any, are urged to get tested.
