TN Assembly session from 21 June, Speaker makes key promise

Kalaivanar Arangam

Chennai: The Tamilnadu Assembly will meet on 21 June with the customary address by Governor Banwarilal Purohit at the Kalaivanar Arangam with the Covid norms in place, Speaker of the House M Appavu said.

Speaking to reporters at the Secretariat, the Speaker said members of all parties in the Assembly would be given equal opportunity to raise issues concerning the people.

He said during the discussions on the motion of thanks to the Governor, question hour is unlikely to happen as members can raise questions after the session begins and they have to be sent to respective departments for answers.

Members and staff who test negative for coronavirus alone will be allowed into the House, Appavu said and added that social distancing norms would be followed in making seating arrangements for the legislators.

There is likely to be a motion of thanks to the Governor for his address to the House and the session would be wound up with the Chief Ministers address, he said.
