The winter session of the Karnataka legislature will be held here at ‘Vidhana Soudha’, the state secretariat and not in Belagavi, as is the practice, as most parts of the district have been ravaged by floods, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said here on September 17.

He said the Belagavi Deputy Commissioner and the district administration had informed him that they were not in a position to hold the session there this time as the district has been ravaged by floods and people are in distress.

“So we will have to conduct the session at the Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru itself, after which it will be held in Belagavi,” Yediyurappa said in Kalaburagi.

It has been a practice hold the winter session of the state legislature at Suvarna Vidhana Soudha in the border district of Belagavi.
