Telangana legislature to meet on April 30

Hyderabad, Apr 27 (PTI) The Telangana legislature would meet on April 30 to take up amendments to the land acquisition act passed by it last year.

The Legislature Secretariat today sent out a communication about the meeting to all members of the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council.

The meeting, expected to be held for a day, would take up amendments suggested by the Centre to the Land Acquisition Act passed by the state legislature, sources said.

The meeting would be part of the Budget session, which was held in March, as the legislature has not been prorogued.
