Permanent schedule for House sessions planned

By Our Staff Reporter

BANGALORE, MARCH 30. The Government is planning to hold the sessions of the two Houses of the Legislature for 75 to 100 days a year according to a permanent schedule, the Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs, H.K. Patil, told the Legislative Council today. Mr. Patil was responding to suggestions made by the Leader of the Opposition, D.H. Shankaramurthy, and M.P. Nadagouda of the Janata Dal (U) to restore the 15 subject committees covered under rules 274 and 281 of the House, which were "suspended at a crucial juncture."

Legislators have suggested to the Government to hold longer sessions of the two Houses to enable a detailed debate on the demand for grants. The members can raise the issue at any opportune time during the session, he added. Mr. Shankaramurthy said the subject committees have their own significance in a parliamentary democracy.
