The session will be held to pass the Vote-on-Account budget ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Kamal Nath said. The session will be a continuation of the Winter Session that was adjourned sine die on December 18 last year.

"The Parliament will meet from February 5 to 21. Yes, it will be continuation of the Winter Session," Nath told reporters after the meeting of Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs chaired by Defence Minister AK Antony.

Sources later said the 'Vote-on-Account' is likely to be taken up on February 17. Nath revealed that the government also plans to pass some crucial anti-corruption legislations which are a part of Manmohan Singh-led UPA government's agenda to address the graft issue.

The Whistleblowers Protection Bill, Judicial Accountability Bill, Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, Citizens Charter Bill, Timely Delivery of Services Bill and Public Procurement Bill are pending in the Parliament.
