Vijayawada, January 10: The first session of Andhra Pradesh assembly this year will be held in Amaravati, said Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu today.
He said the construction of assembly and council building in Amaravati will be completed in another 20 days.
Naidu was talking to reporters in Chennai, where he had gone to attend an event organized by India Today.
The assembly building is coming up near temporary secretariat at Velagapudi village in Guntur district.
However, it’s not clear if the winter session will be convened later this month or early next month. Official sources said the budget session may be first session to be held in Amaravati.
The monsoon session of the state legislature was held in Hyderabad in July last year. Naidu had then declared that this will be the last session to be held in Hyderabad.
However in September, a three-day special session had to be convened in Hyderabad to ratify Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill.
Since then, speculations were going on if winter session will be held in Hyderabad to complete the formalities.
Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad is of the view that if the new building in Amaravati is not ready, the session could be held in another place in Amaravati or Vijayawada.
