The Governor earlier declined state Cabinet's recommendation to convene a special session of the Assembly on December 23 to discuss the farm laws.

The government was also planning to pass a resolution against the farm laws with the support of the opposition Congress in the session.

But the Governor declined the recommendation citing that there was no emergency situation to convene a special session.

The government again gave the recommendation to convene a special session on Dec 31. A decision of the Governor on it was pending.
