Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri said the winter session of the State legislature would be held at the Suvarna Vidhan Soudha Belagavi, tentatively in December 2022. In 2021, the 10 day session held at Belagavi ended on 24 December 2021.
Last year’s winter season bills are still not paid to hotels. Only 50 percent of the dues have been paid to a few only and they had told in public that all the bills would be settled in 30 days. The rates prevailing in 2018 had been approved for payment in 2021 and even that has not yet been paid.
He was speaking to media persons after the end of the 10-day session in Bengaluru.
In the session just held, the assembly transacted for 52 hours and 14 minutes in its 10-day session during which 14 Bills were approved.
Ramesh Jarkiholi skipped the 10-day session of the Legislative Assembly without informing the Speaker.
The speaker declined to give any specific dates but said he would visit Belagavi and then the dates would be announced which is likely to be the second week of December.
All the hotels will be booked for the staff and elected representatives once the dates are announced.
If you are planning to visit Belagavi during the said period, be ready to see the No vacancy board in all the hotels as the district administration has reserved all the available rooms in the city for the legislators and others who will be coming to the town for the winter session of the Karnataka assembly.
Apart from MLAs, there will be ministers, secretaries and other officials coming for the session. Accommodation will also be provided for marshals and drivers.
Accommodation for a few will be arranged in Hubbali as well.
All sorts of steps have been taken to facilitate the session. The session is sure to take place in December. The government will decide the date.
