Bhubaneswar: Ahead of the commencement of the budget session of the Odisha Assembly, the opposition BJP on Monday boycotted the all-party meeting.

The BJP leaders opposed the proposal for virtual attendance of MLAs during the session.

Speaker AK Arukha convened an all-party meeting for the smooth conduct of the budget session beginning tomorrow.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Arukha said all the members can attend the Assembly proceedings occupying their respective seats.

The MLAs, who are unwell, can attend the Assembly through video-conferencing (VC) mode. The Press gallery will also be opened for media persons. This time, it was decided to allow the general public to witness the Assembly proceedings as it was done during the pre-Covid time, Arukha said.
