Assembly session from June 15

KOLKATA, 22 May : The budget session of the West Bengal Assembly will resume on June 15, Speaker Hashim Abdul Halim said on Thursday. The Assembly was adjourned on March 27. 

Though the Assembly would resume in the backdrop of the reverses suffered by the ruling Left Front in the Lok Sabha election, Halim said there was no relation between the two and it was not correct that the session was being resumed earlier than usual. 

Going by the results of the LS polls, in which the seats of the Left Front went down from 35 to 15, the Opposition has won in 193 of the 294 Assembly segments in the state, thus having a notional majority. LF candidates have lost in Assembly constituencies of 27 state ministers.
