Legislative Council to be abolished in AP

New Delhi: In a big development, Andhra Pradesh Cabinet on Monday (January 27) approved the draft bill to abolish the legislative council. The information was shared by YSRCP MLA Gudivada Amaranth to ANI.

The Council has already sent a decentralisation bill to the Select Committee. It is to be noted that TDP, which enjoys the absolute majority in the 58-member legislative council, had been delaying two bills dealing with the decentralisation of the Andhra Pradesh’s capital.

According to reports, the ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP), miffed with the constant roadblock created by TDP in the council, took the decision in today’s Cabinet meet to abolish the council.
