"We would want the EC to convene a special session to discuss on the proposed amendment," Congress MDC from Mawhati constituency, Charles Marngar told reporters here today.
According to him, they are demanding for the special session as they are unhappy with the decision of the committee set up by the State Government stating that the changes made in the recommendations submitted to the Parliamentary Standing Committee were made without the knowledge of the stakeholders.
"The stakeholders had proposed that the number of seats should be increase to 31 which will include two nominated women members. Despite this, the State Government in its report to the Parliament standing committee recommended that the seats should be increased to 40," he said. It may be mentioned that the current strength of seats in the KHADC is 30 with one nominated member.
