New Delhi: To accommodate Obama's plan to address the MPs, the Winter Session of Parliament that usually starts in the second week of November, is likely to be advanced.
U.S. President Barack Obama, who will undertake his first state visit to India in November, is expected to address a joint session of Parliament.
Obama is expected to address the joint session on November 9, government sources said here on Friday.
In view of this plan, the Winter Session of Parliament, that usually starts in the second week of November, will be advanced, they said.
Obama, who took over as U.S. President in January last year, will be undertaking his first state visit to India with an aim of pushing the bilateral ties to new heights.
Obama’s predecessor George W. Bush, who visited India in March 2006, could not have the honour of addressing the joint session of Parliament of the world’s largest democracy.
Initially, Bush was tipped to address the joint session but the plan was dropped when the Left parties threatened to boycott it.
The Left parties were critical of Bush over the war in Iraq.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton had addressed the joint session during his visit in 2000.
Among others to have addressed the Indian MPs at a joint session was the then Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe who visited India in August 2007.
