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.

Good move, amount saved can be utilized for benefit of flood hit areas. And we the Belgaum people breath easily, as due to arrival of our so called elected members instead of doing business in SVS they are busy in some other activities which will disturb the smooth flow of traffic and water supply electricity supply to the city too will be affected during session, thanks for not conducting session in SVS. Kindly keep it up in future.
