Legal experts said as there is no provision to make a second capital in the state so bill to that effect has not been passed.

The TOI reports – Law department reportedly said there was no provision in the law to officially grant such status. Therefore the state government has decided not to pass a bill or issue a notification to this effect. It will only make a formal declaration on the floor of the House in the forthcoming winter session.

The promise to shift some offices to the Suvarna Soudha also has not been fulfilled.
