Session on drought from July 16

Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda on Thursday announced that the Government would convene the Legislature session on July 16, especially to discuss issues pertaining to  drought.  The session would go on for at least 15 days. 

He was addressing the Legislative Council, which was convened to hold elections to the post of the chairman, where BJP MLC D H Shankarmurthy was elected unanimously by members of both ruling and opposition parties.

Gowda’s statement came in response to JD(S) MLC M C Nanaiah’s demand that the Government convene a special session to discuss drought. The proceedings of the House began with BJP MLC Amarnath Patil taking his oath, following which the elections were held through a voice vote.

Congress MLC S R Patil, who has replaced Motamma as the leader of the opposition by his party, said that Shankarmurthy was “the right man in the right place.”
