The two-day session is meant only for passing the proposed bill and no other business like questions and answers would be taken up, the sources said.

Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had favoured bringing in the new municipal legislation to eradicate corruption.
"The Telangana New Municipal Act should be brought in to eradicate corruption. This time around (after TRS returned to power in December last), people expect from the government best practices and best policies," he said in a meeting with officials last week.
The new Municipal Act should be "stringent and help development of towns in a better way," he had suggested.
Meanwhile, the opposition Congress, BJP and TDP have demanded that the situation arising out of inadequate rainfall in the state and consequent problems in farm sector should also be discussed in the Assembly.
