Odisha Govt proposes to set up Legislative Council


Bhubaneswar, Jan 01: Odisha government is looking forward to create a legislative council in the state. Talking to media, ruling BJD spokesperson Pratap Keshari Deb said that the discussion on this matter is in the primary stage. This will take a long time.

The legislative council formation is only possible after the proposal will be tabled in the Assembly; it gets consent from the members, and then sent it to the Union government and President for approval.

However, the BJP and Congress opposed the government's proposal to create a legislative council in the state. Senior BJP leader Bijay Mohapatra stated that there was no need of legislative council in the state. It is only aimed at rehabilitating the BJD leaders, he alleged.

State Congress president Prasad Harichandan also questioned the need of the formation of a legislative council in Odisha.
