Srinagar, Feb 2: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has announced that next session of the legislature, last before the general Assembly elections, will be held in May in a new complex in the summer capital.
Expressing satisfaction over the status of construction during his inspection of the complex, coming up at a cost of Rs 22 crore in front of the Civil Secretariat, seat of the Government, Mr Azad said here the next session of the legislature would be held in the new complex in May, immediately after the offices shift from Jammu to Srinagar.
He inspected various floors of the complex to check its progress.
The budget session in Jammu was curtailed and speaker adjourned the legislative assembly sine die last month, ten days before the scheduled date after main opposition National Conference (NC) did not allow any business, demanding the resignation of two ministers for their alleged involvement in the forest scandal.
The Chief Minister also visited the under-construction Rs 28 crore museum complex at Lal Mandi and said it would be the first museum to be completed in a record time of one year.
