Meanwhile, two-time former prime minister, Manmohan Singh's 30-year long tenure as a Rajya Sabha member ended on 14 June. The end of his tenure and loss of HD Deve Gowda's loss at the Tumkur constituency in the recent general elections will mean none of the former prime ministers will be present at the parliament during the budget session.

Singh will not be present in the Rajya Sabha for the first time since he won his first election from Assam in 1991. He could not make in the Upper House of the Parliament due to Congress party's poor strength in the state Assembly, who could not get him re-elected from Assam as it has only 25 MLAs as against 43 first-preference votes needed. The renowned economist was last elected to the Rajya Sabha in 2013.

Deve Gowda, (PM from June 1996 to April 1997), lost to BJP's GS Basavaraj from Tumkur Lok Sabha constituency by over 13,000 votes in the recent general elections. He used to regularly contest from the Hassan constituency but gave up his seat in favour of his grandson Prajwal Revanna.
