BENGALURU: The winter session of the state legislature to be held in November could go down as a historic one in curbing the unruly behaviour of our legislators in the House to ensure meaningful discussion on issues of public interest.
The proposed amendments for Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business will be placed for discussion and approval in the next session of the state legislature, said Speaker K B Koliwad.
Speaking to reporters after the first meeting of the Legislature Committee to suggest amendments, Koliwad said the committee would submit its report within three weeks.
The proposed amendments include compulsory conduct of legislature session for at least 60 days in a year, uninterrupted conduct of business of at least four hours every day when protests and dharnas will not be allowed and taking up major issues of pubic importance through Adjournment Motion and other means in the post-lunch session, Koliwad said.
