"It is important to note that the schedule of elections are finalised by Election Commission of India whereas the Parliament Session is convened as per established practice and convention", said the letter signed by senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mallikarjun Kharge, Anand Sharma, Jyotiraditya Scindia and Deependra Hooda. Elections and Parliament sessions generally do not overlap. While the introduction of a bill to ban triple talaq is high on its priority list, it is also keen to push the Labour Code, the Financial Resolution and Deposit Insurance Bill and several other pending legislations.

"This will be a 14-day session, 25th and 26th December will be Christmas holidays", parliamentary affairs minister Ananth Kumar said. A select committee headed by BJP leader Bhupendra Yadav has already submitted its report to Parliament on the issue in Monsoon Session. The Congress, which has described the Goods and Services Tax (GST) as a hasty step, is expected to come out hard at the BJP government over the issue. Congress sources said that they would raise the issue in Parliament.
