Assembly Session Anytime After November 25Hyderabad: With the Centre putting the process of bifurcation of the State on fast- track, speculations are rife that the Assembly may be convened anytime after November 25. Though no official confirmation is available in regard to the timing of convening of the House, indications are that President Pranab Mukherjee would send the draft Bill to the Assembly around that time and hence it would become mandatory for the State Government to convene a brief session of the Assembly immediately.

Sources say that as per rules the draft Bill has to be discussed and the “views” of the Assembly will have to be sent back to the President within the given time. Speculation is that he may give about ten days. Normally the State Assembly holds its Winter Session around that period. Even otherwise the Speaker can call it at short notice of forty eight hours since the previous Budget Session was only adjourned sine-die but not prorogued.
Meanwhile, the Centre is said to be assessing the likely political fallout of its move to send the draft Bill to the Assembly. According to the intelligence reports the Centre has, the Seemandhra region may be once again on the boil as soon as the draft Bill reaches the Speaker. Hence it wants to ensure that there were no hurdles in putting the Bill for discussion. According to party leaders, the Centre is also closely monitoring and trying to assess if Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy would continue with his defiant stance or will cooperate in the process of division of the state.
In view of the statements being made by some ministers that Kiran would make a power packed speech on the floor of the House and would immediately resign so that a Constitutional crisis can be created, the high command wants to keep the contingency plan in place before the Bill is sent to the Assembly. If such a situation arises, the possibility of imposing President’s rule cannot be ruled out, senior Congress leaders say.
They feel that the series of meetings Governor ESL Narsimhan had with UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, AICC in charge of state Affairs Digvijay Singh and other leaders also indicate that the high command wants to ensure that nothing goes wrong and the Constitutional process was completed during the Winter Session of the Parliament that is slated to begin from December 5 to last for about three weeks.
