The CM has, however, announced that a separate meeting of Vidarbha legislators would be called to discuss issues concerning the region. "We will hold an Advantage Vidarbha programme in February and would endeavour to bring four major initiatives namely textile industry, agro-industry, co-operatives and automobile companies," the CM said in the press conference.
On extending the session to third week, Khadse alleged the government refused. The CM said, "The duration is decided by the Business Advisory Committee comprising ruling and Opposition members."
The CM said, "Nine Bills were passed." The Bill to curb black magic was yet again carried forward to the next session along with two more for want of more clarity.
He said, "A special session of the Legislature is being mulled at Nagpur on the occasion of its diamond jubilee. Dates will be fixed later." For now, the highlight of the Nagpur session for Vidarbha is the announcement made of two medical colleges at Chandrapur and Gondia.
