CHENNAI: The State Assembly will convene on July 10 for the Budget Session. This would be the first session after the AIADMK’s sweep in the Lok Sabha election.

With the budget for 2014-15 already having been presented in the House in February, the demands for grant of the various departments would be taken up.

Finance Minister O Panneerselvam had presented the year’s budget to the Assembly on February 13. But the government had sought the Assembly’s approval for funds in the form of a vote-on-account, in view of the Lok Sabha elections. The government would also have the option of presenting revised budgetary estimates.

The Budget Session of the Assembly usually takes around 25 to 30 working days, which means the upcoming session could stretch well into August.

The Budget Session would also be coming after CM J Jayalalithaa’s visit to New Delhi, scheduled for Tuesday, when she is expected to meet PM Narendra Modi. She would be presenting him with a memorandum.

The Budget Session would also the see the AIADMK’s brute majority grow by one, in the form of VNP Venkatraman, recently elected in the Alandur by-election. It would also mean the loss of one more face for the DMDK, whose deputy leader Panrutti S Ramachandran had resigned from his Alandur seat when he quit the party.
