Countering opposition criticism, Finance Minister on Monday said the of would "certainly" be held, adding that sessions have been delayed in the past as well.

"It has happened several times that sessions are rescheduled when an election is happening and timing is decided in such a way that it does not overlap with election campaigns," Jaitley told reporters in Rajkot of Gujarat.

"They (Congress) did so in 2011, and even before that... session will be certainly held, all issues will be taken, and Congress will be exposed," Jaitley said.
