The Telangana Assembly session will last three days
The Telangana government recently made a decision to conduct a short three-day Assembly session, which is likely to be the last one before the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections later this year. The Telangana Assembly session will focus on discussions regarding the heavy rain, floods, and the government’s efforts in rescue and relief operations. It will also cover topics related to the welfare schemes being implemented in the state. During the session, ten Bills are expected to be passed.
The Business Advisory Committee, chaired by Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, made this decision, and prominent figures like Minister for Legislative Affairs Vemula Prashanth Reddy, Finance Minister T. Harish Rao, and others attended the meeting.
The Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader, Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, and other leaders requested a longer 20-day session to address various issues faced by the people. However, the government declined the request and opted for the three-day session.
On the first day of the session, the House adjourned to pay tribute to MLA G. Sayanna, who passed away in February. The session is expected to continue until August 6.
Additionally, the state government plans to pass three bills that were earlier returned by the Governor during this session. These bills pertain to municipal administration, panchayat, and education. The state Cabinet criticized the Governor’s decision and accused the Centre of misusing the Governor’s office.
Once the Assembly passes these bills again, they will be sent for the Governor’s approval. The three bills are the Telangana State Private Universities (Establishment and Regulation) (Amendment Bill), the Telangana Municipal Laws (Amendment) Bill, and the Telangana Panchayat Raj (Amendment) Bill.
