If the Telangana government headed by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has his way, the winter session of the Telangana state legislative assembly commencing on Friday will be the longest session, testing the patience of the MLAs of both the ruling as well as the opposition parties.
At the Business Advisory Committee meeting of the state assembly held on Thursday, the government has proposed that the winter session would be held for 50 days.
When KCR mooted the idea, leader of the opposition K Jana Reddy did not dare to oppose it, because it is generally the opposition which demands the conduct of assembly session for more days.
According to the BAC decision, there will be no sitting of the house on Saturdays and Sundays.
The assembly will have a holiday during the visit of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the city in November end.
The Prime Minister would be inaugurating the Global Entrepreneurs Summit (GES) and also the Hyderabad Metro Rail.
The BAC will meet again on Friday to decide the agenda for the 50-day session. The house will be adjourned immediately after the question hour to facilitate the BAC meet.
Last year, too, the government held winter session for nearly 30 days and the opposition MLAs had to plead the Speaker to end the session at the earliest.
