According to the Chief Minister’s Office, he will participate in the Assembly session beginning on Friday, and will also attend the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) meeting, before leaving for the national capital.
The Chief Minister will have a meeting with Union Jal Shakti Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on Saturday.
