Patna: Bihar’s bicameral legislature will assemble for a truncated session on Monday which will continue for the whole day.
The session will mark the first occasion of legislative business being held away from the Vidhan Sabha premises due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The Governor Fagu Chauhan has permitted holding of the session at the modern, spick and span ‘Gyan Bhavan’ complex.
The change of venue was necessitated by concerns regarding adherence to social distancing, which has become a must in the wake of the pandemic. The 243-strong assembly will meet at a huge hall situated on the second floor of the Gyan Bhavan with a seating capacity for 800 people.
Facilities like face masks, sanitisers and antigen testing kits will be available at Gyan Bhavan during the day.
