New Delhi, Jan 10 (IANS) The Budget Session of Parliament would begin with the address of President Ram Nath Kovind to the joint sitting of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Narendra Tomar said on Thursday.

A meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) was held on Wednesday to decide on the dates of the session.
