The monsoon session of the Assembly was today prorogued after just eight working days instead of the 18 days originally decided by the BAC, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy announced that the house was being adjourned sine die due to the coronavirus cases among the MLAs and the Assembly staff.
About 52 persons including the Nampally MLA, some of the Assembly staff and media persons were positive, and so the number of days of the session were reduced following a decision taken after a meeting of the BAC on Tuesday, he said.
Reddy said that the Assembly had passed 12 bills and some resolutions in the eight days.
In addition to the landmark revenue bill, the house passed the VROs cancellation bill and the panchayat raj amendment bill among others.
The house also passed resolutions asking the Centre to repeal the draconian power bill and to confer the Bharat Ratna on former Prime Minister P V Narsimha Rao.
The sessions saw some heated arguments between the treasury benches and the opposition on the revenue bill, the city's development and its roads, the metro rail, education, irrigation projects and others.
The Speaker extended thanks to the members, staff, media and police for helping conduct the sessions.
