AP Legislature to have winter session in new capital region

The winter session of Andhra Pradesh Legislature will be held in the state’s permanent capital region near Vijaywada.

This was decided at an all-party meeting convened by Andhra Pradesh Assembly Speaker K Siva Prasad here today.

The meeting favoured undertaking temporary constructions to conduct the session for Assembly and Council, a release issued by the Speaker’s Media Liaison Officer said.

TDP Rajya Sabha member G Mohan Rao, who attended the meeting as a special invitee, has been asked to go into the issue of expenditure and proposals for construction by different firms, it said.

The details of expenditure estimates would be submitted to the state government after obtaining the relevant information, the release said.
