As per the plan to maintain social distancing rule, fewer MPs attended the session compared to a regular session

The eighth session of 11th parliament was prorogued on Thursday after only nine sittings.

It was the shortest budget session in Bangladesh history as only two days were allotted for holding discussions on the budget for the fiscal year 2020-21. Discussions on supplementary budget for the fiscal year 2019-20 were held for just a single day.

Eighteen members of parliament took part in the budget discussions, talking for around five hours and 18 minutes.

Five bills were passed in the session.

Speaker Dr Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury read out the prorogation order of the president around 01:33pm.

Speaker Shirin Sharmin thanked all the MPs, officials, journalists, law enforcers, and fire service and civil defence personnel for their services and for smoothly holding the session.

As per the plan to maintain social distancing rule, fewer MPs attended the session compared to a regular session.
