Panaji:  Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Monday refused to curtail the upcoming Budget Session of the Assembly even though the opposition benches had feared that he would be violating the Code of Conduct through his announcement.

While the results for the elections of six municipal councils and the Corporation of City  of Panaji (CCP) were announced on Monday, the state is yet to hold the elections for five more municipal bodies.

The Supreme Court has asked the State government to complete the election process for all the five municipal councils by April 20.

Sawant told reporters that he would not be curtailing the period of the Assembly session which begins on March 24.

“There is no need to curtail the period of Assembly Session. The Budget announcements on the floor of the House do not violate the Code of Conduct,” he said.

Sawant said that he has confirmed the legal position with the experts who have claimed that the announcement on the Budget do not violate the Code of Conduct.

The opposition parties, last week, had met Governor B S Koshyari requesting him to curtail the Session as the process for elections for five municipal councils would be held during the Session.

Sawant is expected to present the Budget on March 24.
