Min: Resolution for Legislative Council sent to Centre

Wednesday, 20 November 2019 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

The State Government has sent a proposal to the Union Government for creation of a Legislative Council in the State after a resolution was passed in the State Assembly on September 9, 2018.

Parliamentary Affairs Minister Bikram Keshari Arukha informed this in the State Assembly in response to a question of BJD MLA Ananta Narayan Jena on Tuesday.

“To form a Legislative Council, a committee had been formed during the 15th Assembly. The committee members visited Legislative Councils of States like Karnataka, Maharashtra, Bihar and Telangana and submitted a report. The report suggesting establishment of a Legislative Council in Odisha got the Cabinet nod on August 24, 2018. Then, a bill was passed in the Assembly on September 6, 2018. Later the same was sent to Secretaries of Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs and the Ministry of Law for approval of the Parliament,” said the Minister. 

The Minister said issues relating to the State can be discussed broadly and Bills passed in the Assembly can be examined further if a Legislative Council is formed.
