It's Suvarna Vidhan Soudha in Belgaum

Prez to inaugurate it on October 11

 The building erected to conduct some sessions of the Karnataka’s legislature was renamed Suvarna Vidhan Soudha (SVS) on Friday by the State government. It was previously called Suvarna Soudha.

Legislative Assembly Speaker K G Bopaiah told reporters that the name was changed after a meeting with the elected representatives and officials concerned, because the public found it more appropriate. The new name will be notified soon.

The building will be inaugurated on October 11. President Pranab Mukherjee has agreed to be the guest of honour. After inaugurating the Soudha, Mukherjee is expected to address a joint session of the State legislature. Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar will also address the session.

“All facilities available in the Vidhana Soudha in Bangalore have been made available in SVS, the only difference being that SVS has a Central Hall,” said Bopaiah.The words ‘Work is Worship’ (kayakave kailasa) by 12th Century poet Basavanna will be inscribed on the facade of SVS, said Bopaiah.

Law Minister Suresh Kumar said former prime minister and Janata Dal (Secular) chief H D Deve Gowda, all the surviving former chief ministers, Union ministers, Speakers and legislators will be invited for the inauguration.
