Hyderabad: The Telangana Legislative Council adjourned sine die on Wednesday owing to fear of spread of Covid following the testing positive of few members and staff. Making this announcement the Chairman of the Council Gutha Sukender Reddy said that the Council was able to pass 12 bills and adopted resolutions seeking Bharat Ratna to former Prime Minister PV Narasimha Rao and another against the proposed Electricity Amendment Bill 2020.
“As 1200 people including legislators, police, media and others were attending the monsoon session there is general apprehension about the spread of the Covid virus. Even though we have taken all precautions and adopted all the norms prescribed by the authorities, the mood of the house at large was that there is a possibility of spread of the pandemic,” he said explaining the reasons behind the decision to discontinue the present session.
He said that he has consulted floor leaders of all political parties before taking the decision. “We will continue discussing remaining issues once the Covid subsides and we will be able to meet again on some other day. I wish that all of you will be returning to your constituencies and work among the people by adopting all precautionary measures. I hereby declare that the Council is adjourned sine die,” he said.
