The winter session of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly is likely to be held in Mumbai from December 22, a senior minister said after a cabinet meeting on Thursday. He said that the first session was to begin in Nagpur from December 7, but it will be postponed in view of the elections.
The minister said the cabinet discussed holding the winter session for two weeks from December 22. “The final decision will be taken in the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) on November 29. An announcement to hold the session in Mumbai instead of Nagpur will also be made after the BAC,” he said. The government decided to postpone the session in view of the biennial elections to the Legislative Council and elections to other local bodies, he said. The winter session is traditionally held in the state’s second capital, Nagpur.
