HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao cancelled the 'special session' of the Legislative Assembly and also Local Bodies scheduled for August 21. The decision was taken in the Cabinet meeting held at Pragathi Bhavan on Thursday keeping in view the requests made by elected representatives that they needed to attend a large number of weddings on August 21, since it is the 'last auspicious day' of the ongoing marriage season.

It may be recalled that the Chief Minister on August 2 announced to hold a special session of Legislative Assembly to mark the diamond jubilee celebrations of India's Independence and asked all urban and local bodies to follow suit.

Official sources said the ministers also raised this issue in the Cabinet meeting and made a request to the Chief Minister to consider cancelling the special session as there have been a large number of requests from other elected representatives such as sarpanches, ward members, MPTCs, ZPTCs, MLAs, MPs, Mayors and chairpersons of municipal corporations and municipalities and chairpersons holding various nominated posts in the government.

They brought to the notice of the Chief Minister that it would be difficult for them to attend 'special session' owning to their obligations in their constituencies.

The Chief Minister agreed to their request and announced the cancellation of 'special session' immediately.
