Mr Modi, sources said, will attend the session on both days.

The Prime Minister was also present during the meeting. Citing the example of the motion for consideration of the National Medical Commission Bill in Lok Sabha on Monday, which was passed with 260-48 votes, sources said,

Mr Shah said that the margin should have been bigger as the ruling party on its own has 303 members.

The party top brass, including the Prime Minister, has often asked the BJP parliamentarians to attend the sessions regularly and in one of the parliamentary party meetings, Mr Modi had expressed his displeasure at the absenteeism.

Parliamentary Affairs minister Pralhad Joshi briefed the MPs about pending bills and informed that Parliament has so far passed 15 bills.
