Four-day break for Parliament

New Delhi: Lok Sabha will have a four-day break from Saturday with the House today giving its nod to a Business Advisory Committee (BAC) recommendation that December 12 be declared a holiday.

December 13 has already been declared a holiday on account of Eid-e-Milad-un Nabi.

Leaders of all major parties had raised the issue, as in some southern states the Prophet's birthday was being observed on Monday.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan sought the approval of the House in this regard during the Zero Hour and members supported it.
