Should Ministers head House panels? CM
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has called for a serious look into the practice of Ministers heading various subject committees in the Kerala Assembly.
He was speaking after inaugurating a two-day workshop on the functioning of Assembly committees and e-Niyamasabha organised by the Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Training for legislators at the Assembly complex here on Tuesday.
“With the Ministers heading the subject committees as their chairpersons, the discussions will be centred around their departments. For indepth discussions in the committee meetings, it should be examined what will be beneficial,” Mr. Vijayan said.
