Karnataka legislature session adjourned sine die
Belgaum: Both houses of the Karnataka legislature adjourned sine die on Friday, ending the 10-day winter session here in north Karnataka.
Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimappa and his counterpart in the Council D H Shankaramurthy adjourned when the two houses met briefly after paying tributes to anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela, who passed away at his residence in Johannesburg in the early hours this morning.
This was the fourth session to be held here since 2006 when the move was initiated by the JD(S)-BJP coalition government.
This was followed by construction of Suvarna Soudha, modelled on Vidhana Soudha, the state secretariat, by the BJP government as an assertion that Belgaum is an integral part of Karnataka. Maharashtra claims Belgaum should belong to it.
