HYDERABAD: The TRS government decided to highlight its achievements in 10 sectors, including IT, industries and SC welfare, during the seven-day session of the State Legislature, which held started on Friday.

“The government can run the assembly for a number of days, but the session must be meaningful. The House should not become a platform for wrestling competitions. Rather, he should establish great traditions in the conduct of debates and the President should take steps in this direction, ”suggested the Chief Minister.
Two bills tabled in the Assembly
On Friday, the state government introduced two bills in the assembly – the first aimed at improving housing infrastructure in the state and the second, to enable the State Horticultural University Sri Konda Laxman Telangana to offer multidisciplinary diploma and diploma programs in the field of Horticulture and Forestry.
