Bhubaneswar: The month-long winter session of Odisha Assembly, beginning December 1, will meet for five hours every day with strict adherence to COVID guidelines, Speaker Surjya Narayan Patro informed on Monday.

While the House will function from 10.30 am till 1.30 am and again from 4 pm to 6 pm every day, the first day of the session will begin at 11 am when the supplementary budget for 2021-22 will be tabled.

The Speaker had allowed 90 minutes of adjournment motion of which 55 minutes will be allotted to opposition members. While Opposition BJP will be allowed to move adjournment motion for four days, Congress will be given two days (Tuesday and Saturday) for the same.

There will be no business on December 5,12,19 and December 26 due to Sunday and on December 25 for Christmas.

The Speaker also informed members about the new rule barring pandemonium during Question Hour and the Governor’s address, at the customary all-party meeting on Monday.

“All members of the House have been instructed not to create any ruckus in the House during Zero Hour and Governor’s speech. Action will be taken as per the law if it is not obeyed,” said Patro.
