Nagpur: The much awaited annual political affair for the people of Vidarbha, the staging of Winter Session of Maharashtra Legislature which is scheduled to be held in the first week of December, has been finally shifted to state capital, Mumbai.

The state cabinet took the decision on Thursday in Mumbai after days of uncertainty. As per the government announcement, the winter session will commence on December 22 and continue till December 29, 2021.

"Maharashtra's 2nd Capital"

The second capital of Maharashtra, Nagpur, which lost the status of Capital of then Madhya Pradesh after the formation of Maharashtra with merger of Bombay State, Madhya Pradesh and Hyderabad State in 1953, was bestowed upon the honour of holding one session of newly created Maharashtra state every year.


"Nagpur Agreement"

A historic Nagpur Agreement was signed on September 28, 1953 by the then leaders and protagonist of Vidarbha who had submitted their demand for Vidarbha State before the State Reorganisation Commission (SRC) headed by Justice Fazal Ali which suggested an alternative of giving importance to Nagpur and Vidarbha region and holding Assembly Session here.

The Winter Session of Legislature thus not being held in two successive years in 2020 and 2021.
