The Winter session of Andhra Pradesh Legislature Assembly will be conducted in Hyderabad from December 17 to 22, according to the Speaker, Kodela Sivaprasada Rao.
Addressing a press conference at the Assembly premises, the speaker said that it was decided to conduct the Winter Session for six days. Though it was earlier thought of conducting the same in Guntur or Vijayawada, it was deferred due to unavailability of premises and facilities there, he said. The State Government has decided to focus on the key issues and bills to be passed, Sivaprasada Rao stated. Arrangements for the session are being made and officials were asked to take necessary steps. He has asked the departments to coordinate and the police department to provide fool proof security for the session, he added. It is said that the government is planning to conduct the Budget session also in Hyderabad if it could not find suitable venue at Amaravathi or Vijayawada.(NSS)
