AGARTALA, Aug 23 (TIWN): BJP led Tripura Government is to conduct the monsoon Assembly Session under the open sky in a park here in view to fight the COVID-pandemic situation, State's Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath said on Saturday while visiting in a Educational programme. He is also the Education Minister of the state. Ratanlal Nath, on Saturday visited Heritage Park to check the neighboring classes started by the Dept for the students who could not attend online classes, said the session is scheduled in the third week of September and it will be difficult to maintain social distancing in the assembly house. "It will not be right to hold the session in the assembly house. Assembly sessions in many states were held outside the assembly building with restrictions.

The Tripura government is also planning to hold the monsoon session outside the assembly house so that all precautionary measures can be taken properly, he told reporters. The five-day budget session which began on March 20 was cut short to two days due to the outbreak of coronavirus. The session was called off soon after the budget was passed in the assembly.

As per media reports, he said that it is mandatory to organize assembly session within a gap of six months, the law minister said adding he is visiting the park to see if it will be possible to hold the assembly session there.

"Although no final decision on holding the assembly session in the open is yet to be taken", he said. States like Assam had held their assembly sessions with 50 per cent of the total legislator strength to maintain social distancing, Nath added.
