Jammu, Jan 28: The budget session of the state legislature is set to commence by the end of next month, as the Governor NN Vohra Monday summoned both houses of the legislature from February 28.
In a major relief for the government, the legislative complex, according to sources, would be, by that time, ready for holding the session as the repair work on the damaged portion is in the final stage.
As per an official spokesman, Vohra, in exercise of the powers conferred upon him under section 53 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir, has summoned the State Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council to meet at Jammu on Thursday, 28 February 2013 at 10.30 am.
The Governor has called upon the members of the Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council to assemble together in the Central Hall of the Legislature Building in the New Secretariat premises, Jammu, on Thursday, February 28, 2013, where he will address the joint session.
The Governor approved the proposal of the State Government, which was proposed in the last cabinet meeting.
Sources in the Legislative Assembly informed Greater Kashmir that most of the offices of the Assembly would soon function from the main building as the repair works on the damaged portion are likely to be completed by the first week of the next month.
“The renovation work on the damaged portion of Assembly complex is in the final stage and all the offices shifted to Central hall were moved back to the original places today” sources added.
They said that the construction of Press Gallery has already been completed and only some minor works were left, while the construction of chamber of deputy chief minister and Law and Parliamentary Affairs minister was at the final stage.
“Today morning all the offices, which were camped at Central hall of Assembly complex after the collapse of a portion of the building, including Library, offices of Under Secretaries and others have been shifted back to the original place,” an employee of the Legislative Assembly said.
He said that the work on the construction of the chambers of Deputy Chief Minister and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister was at final stage and probably would be completed by first week of February.
Sources also confirmed that the annual budget session and Governor’s address to the joint session of the two houses would be held at the same complex.
The offices which were shifted to rooms, constructed at Garage, sources said, would not be shifted. “Only the offices which have direct contact with the working of Assembly session will be shifted, while all other offices will remain function from the makeshift offices” sources said.
Meanwhile, according to Secretary, Legislative Assembly, Muhammad Ramzan the MLAs have been asked to send not more than 10 starred and 10 un-starred questions by or before 7 February 2013.
