Brief session of Kerala assembly from 26 Nov to 13 Dec

Thiruvananthapuram: A brief session of the Kerala Assembly would be held from 26 November to 13 December.

The state cabinet, which met Wednesday, recommended to Governor P Sathasivam, to convene the assembly.

The session assumes significance as it is being held after the devastating floods during the south west monsoon, which claimed 493 lives and caused widespread destruction.

The state is also facing violent protests from Ayyappa devotees over the implementation of Supreme Court verdict on entry of women of all ages into Sabarimala temple.
