Mizoram assembly to commence from July 7
Aizawl: Mizoram Governor Lt. General (retd.) Nirbhay Sharma today summoned the sixth session of the seventh state legislative assembly to commence from July 7, a state assembly official said.
Additional Secretary of the state assembly S.R. Zokhuma told PTI that the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) of the Assembly chaired by Speaker Hiphei would sit during this month to chalk out detailed programme for the coming session.
State finance secretary F. Vanlalruata expressed the hope that the regular state budget would be prepared and presented by the finance minister Lalsawta during the coming session.
Vanlalruata, however, said that as the centre was yet to allocate the state annual plan outlay for the current fiscal (2015-2016), it was not yet confirmed that a regular budget would be presented.
Lalsawta could not present the state budget during the budget session in March last and sought a vote-on-account for the first four months of the current financial year.
