Kerala assembly session to be called off due to COVID transmission
Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala assembly session, which was decided to convene on July 27, will be cancelled. The government has conducted primary discussions with the opposition in this regard.
The opposition has filed a no-trust motion against the speaker and the government. These notices will become irrelevant if the assembly session is cancelled. The government also intends to call for an all-party meeting in the context of COVID transmission in the state.
The assembly session was decided to be held on July 22 as the finance bill has to be passed before July 31. If the assembly is not convened, then the finance bill will have to be passed as an ordinance. A finance bill has never been passed as an ordinance in the state’s history.
The cabinet will have to request the governor to cancel the notification released regarding the assembly session. A special cabinet meeting will be convened on Thursday to discuss these issues.
