Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa’s cabinet has decided to hold the Legislature session in Bengaluru and not at the Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in Belagavi as the district is yet to recover from the damage caused by the recent heavy floods.
Ever since the inauguration of Suvarna Vidhana Soudha, it has been a convention to hold the winter session in Belagavi.
CLP leader Siddaramaiah said the government has failed to respond to the concerns of the people in flood-affected areas, including Belagavi. So they are scared to hold a session there.
The Congress, in a resolution passed during its legislative party meeting headed by Siddaramaiah on Wednesday, was keen on urging the government to hold the winter session of the assembly in Belagavi, or face protests.
