Leader of the Opposition in Karnataka Assembly Mallikarjuna Kharge today criticised the State government for having called the special Assembly session in Belgaum this month ‘in a hurry’.
The duration of the session to be held in Belgaum was very short and should have been 20 days instead of three or four days. The government has convened the session only to fulfill the constitutional obligations which will not serve any purpose.
Governor Rameshwar Thakur will address the joint sitting of the State Legislature scheduled to begin from January 16 in Belgaum.
There will be no question hour during the Belgaum session. Both houses will sit on Jan 17 and take up obituary references. Official business will be taken up for six days from Jan 19 to 24. The houses will adjourn on Jan 24.
No question hour means the problems of the common man will not be raised, which is a must in democracy then why this Natak in Karnatak.
But, due to this session the roads are getting a new lease of life. Buildings are being painted, new High mast street lamps will be put up, about 25 in 10 days time, dividers being put and painted. Traffic signals being repaired and many other such things are been taken up right now in the city.
So this is nice for Belgaum.
