BUDGET SESSION: NO CHANGE IN VENUE
Jammu, Jan 14: The state government has dropped the idea to change the venue for the next budget session as it is expecting to complete the repair work on the damaged assembly complex soon.
With repair works in full swing, the government is looking forward to hold the budget session in the existing Assembly building expected to be held in February.
They said an expert team from Centre was likely to inspect the repair work.
Sources said an empowered committee of state government was also “closely monitoring” the repair works to ensure their early completion.
An official, wishing anonymity, said makeshift seating arrangements would be put in place at the Press Gallery likely to be completed in one or two weeks. “No changes are being made in the Central Hall because the authorities are hoping to conduct the Session at the old place,” the official said.
Sources said, “There will also be no change in the venue for Governor’s address to joint session of two houses as the restoration work is in full swing.”
