CHENNAI: The first session of the State Assembly for the current year will begin from the 23rd of January, the first meeting since the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa.
The announcement came amid calls from the opposition for a special session to discuss the severe distress in farming sector that has hit hard thousands across the State.
The duration of this session will be decided by the Business Advisory Committee of the House after the Governor’s address is completed. The session is likely to last for five days.
A day after the Governor’s address, the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address will be moved and the discussion on this will continue for the rest of the session. On the last day of the session, chief minister O Panneerselvam will reply to the issues raised during the debate.
This will be Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao's first address to the Tamil Nadu Assembly, as he assumed the office on September 2, 2016, the day on which the last Assembly session had taken place.
