Punjab Vidhan Sabha Session by month-end likely

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 16

The Congress government is likely to call the monsoon session of the Vidhan Sabha in the last week of this month amid strict adherence to the Covid-19 norms.

The state Cabinet, which is meeting on Monday, would be discussing the schedule of the upcoming session before sending its recommendations to the Punjab Governor for approval. The duration of the session would depend on the business to be transacted. It is likely to be held between August 24 and August 28, it is learnt.

Expecting it to be a stormy session as the Opposition parties are preparing to take on the government on the issue of spurious liquor tragedy and illegal sand mining in wake of the Punjab and Haryana High Court ordering CBI probe into the existence of illegal checkpoints (nakas) near mining sites in Ropar district, the government is in favour of keeping the session shorter, say sources.

The Parliamentary Affairs Department, in a communication to the Punjab Vidhan Sabha Speaker, has sought calling of the session before September 6, as it is mandatory to call the session within six months of the previous session.

Accordingly, the Vidhan Sabha session has tied up with the health authorities for seating plan of the ministers and MLAs during the session.
