The government is hopeful that the Monsoon Session of Parliament will begin on its normal schedule in July, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi said on Tuesday amid the second wave of COVID-19.

Parliamentary Standing Committee meetings are also expected to resume from the third week of June, according to sources.
