The winter session of the Madhya Pradesh Meeting, which was once scheduled to start on December 28, has been postponed in view of the “Covid-19 situation”, an official said on Sunday, hours after protem speaker disclosed that 61 employees and officials of the Meeting secretariat and five MLAs have tested coronavirus positive.

The decision to put off the three-day session was once taken at an all-party assembly held here in evening, he said.

“The three-day session has been postponed because of the Covid-19 situation. The three days (of the session which will be now washed out) will be added in the Budget session, which would be a lengthy one,” Legislative Meeting’s Principal Secretary AP Singh told reporters.

The all-party assembly was once attended by Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Home Minister Narottam Mishra, state Congress unit president Kamal Nath and others.

The Congress had earlier announced that the party leaders will reach the Meeting campus on Monday on tractors to demostrate against these laws.

“But even so, five MLAs were also found infected as per the reports received till now,” he said, after taking inventory of the preparation for the session.

Sharma also said the MLAs and their personal staff had been asked to undergo coronavirus test before the session began.

“So far, the test reports of 20 MLAs have been received. The reports of several other legislators are still awaited. Reports of more employees and officials are also yet to come,” he added.
