"The Budget Session stands cancelled. There will be no Assembly session from January 18", Assembly Speaker Kavinder Gupta said today.
Sayeed had died on January 7 after a brief illness. The new government will decide on when to convene the session afresh, Gupta said.
During the 52-day session, the PDP-BJP government headed by Sayeed was to present its annual budget on January 22.
The announcement regarding cancellation of the session comes a day after Governor N N Vohra held a meeting with all administrative Secretaries of the state where he said the matter shall be reviewed by the new government, sources said.
As per the provisional calendar, the session, which was to get underway with the Governor's address on January 18 and conclude on March 9, would have been the longest ever Budget Session of the House.
