"The invitation for the same has been sent to concerned leaders through email. Letter to follow," he added.

The opposition has also criticised the BJP-led central government for calling a special session of Parliament without disclosing the agenda.

Earlier, the Union Parliamentary Affairs Minister informed about the five-day special session of Parliament from September 18-22.

The agenda for the special session was however not revealed yet.

The Monsoon Session of Parliament, which concluded last month, was held in the old Parliament building. The announcement of the Special Session came as a surprise in political circles with the parties gearing up for assembly polls in five states later this year.
