Legislatures in poll states hardly met in five years

Kerala Assembly, which will go to polls on April 13, met for 240 days during the last five years with an average of 48 days per year, an RTI reply accessed by the Association of Democratic Reforms said. The sittings of Kerala Assembly are highest among all the assemblies going to polls, followed by West Bengal which met for 219 days (average of 44 days a year) and Tamil Nadu 214 days (an average of 43 days a year).

The data reveals that Puducherry Assembly’s budget session during last three years lasted for just a day, ADR claimed. The Assembly during the last five years sat only for a total of 123 days, which is lowest among all the assemblies going for polls.
