New Delhi: A two-day special session of the Lok Sabha will be convened on 21 July to enable the UPA government to prove its majority after the Left parties withdrew support on the nuclear deal issue.
A decision to this effect was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs here today, sources said.
The session will be convened on 21 July when the vote of confidence motion will be moved and voting will take place the next day, they said.
The CCPA meeting came a day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met President Pratibha Patil and handed over a letter stating that his government wishes to seek a trust vote as soon as possible.
At a meeting of coalition partners, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi today exuded confidence that the government will sail through.
“I have no doubt that we shall prove our majority...,” she said.
