New Delhi (NVI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be chairing an all-party meeting on December 4, to discuss the COVID-19 situation in the country.

The development came as PM Modi reviewed ongoing efforts in India to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, which has infected more than 94 lakh people in the country.

According to the media reports, the floor leaders of all parties from Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha have been called for the meeting, which will be held virtually on Friday at 10:30 am.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Home Minister Amit Shah, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, and parliamentary affairs minister Pralhad Joshi will also attend the meeting.

This will be the second such meeting called by the government to discuss the COVID-19 situation since the outbreak of the pandemic.

However, the meeting is being held at a time when it is being contemplated to merge the winter session of parliament with the budget session in wake of rising COVID-19 cases in Delhi.
