With its heavy legislative agenda more or less sailing through in both Houses of Parliament, the government may propose sine die adjournment on Wednesday, a day ahead of schedule, sources said. Members are also sensing the early adjournment. Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, for instance, is traveling to Kerala on Wednesday. Incidentally, if the House adjourns sine die in the morning session on Wednesday, the suspension of Trinamool Congress’s Derek O’Brien could be one of the shortest ones. He was suspended on Tuesday for the remaining part of the session.
