The state government is making all-out efforts to hold Monsoon Session at the newly built Suvarna Soudha, a replica of the Vidhana Soudha, at Belgaum next month.
For this purpose, Chief Minister D V Sadananda Gowda held a meeting of elected representatives of Belgaum district and PWD officials and reviewed work on the massive building being built at a whopping cost of Rs 391 crore.
After the meeting, Gowda said that the civil works of the building were over and only interior works remained pending. “Engineers have told me that the building will be ready by June end,” the CM said while refusing to clarify whether the next session would be held at Belgaum or not.
The Suvarna Soudha has an Assembly Hall, Council Hall, ministers’ room like Vidhana Soudha.
“Once the Suvarna Soudha gets operational it will full fill the needs of north Karnataka people,” the Chief Minister said.
The state government plans to construct hostels for elected representatives in the vicinity of Suvarna Soudha.
Meanwhile, the state Cabinet which met on Thursday authorised Sadananda Gowda to fix the date and venue for the Monsoon Session of the state Legislature.
