UTTARAKHAND SEES ONE-DAY BUDGET SESSION AMID CORONA LOCKDOWN
Rahil Nora Chopra : Coronavirus not only has cut short Parliament session but also has hampered the Budget session of Uttarakhand Assembly, especially upsetting chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat. CM had earlier announced that summer session of assembly would commence from 25 March in summer capital Gairsain, but due to coronavirus-induced lockdown, Uttarakhand government instead opted for a one-day Budget session in Dehradun. Within a day, without any discussion the budget was passed and opposition leader Indira Hridayesh has supported the government in passing the Budget. In the end of the session, both the Congress and BJP MLAs rushed back to their homes. In fact, coronavirus has disturbed all the preparations and announcements of chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat before the coming assembly election.
