UP plans special Assembly session to celebrate India’s Constitution Day

The last time the state government recommended a special session was to mark Gandhi Jayanti.

Sources said an all-party meeting was likely to be convened on November 8, where the suggestion about holding the special Assembly session would be discussed.

THE Uttar Pradesh government is planning a special session of the Legislative Assembly on November 26 to mark Constitution Day, apart from a series of events across five months — from November 26 to April 14, 2020, observed as Ambedkar Jayanti.

This is a bid to raise awareness among the masses on Preamble of Indian Constitution and also on Article 51 (A), Fundamental Duties of Every Citizen. Instructions in this regard have been given by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to all the departments and officials concerned.

Sources said an all-party meeting was likely to be convened on November 8, where the suggestion about holding the special Assembly session would be discussed.

The last time the state government recommended a special session was to mark Gandhi Jayanti. The session went on for 48 hours but opposition parties boycotted the session with each planning their own events on October 2, alleging that the state government was not serious about following Gandhi’s ideology.
