Kerala Assembly passes amendment bill to give VS key post

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala Assembly Tuesday passed Legislative Assembly (Removal of Disqualifications) Amendment Bill, paving way for appointment of CPI-M veteran V S Achuthanandan as chairman of the Administrative Reforms Commission.

The bill is envisaged to make necessary amendments in the present law to remove technical obstacles to confer Achuthanandan, also a legislator in the state Assembly, the post with Cabinet rank.

When the bill was introduced in the Assembly, it had invited criticism from the Congress led UDF Opposition, which said it would add burden on the state's Consolidated Fund.

Earlier, a draft bill to amend the law related to the commission was approved by the state Cabinet.

Under sub-clause (a) of clause (1) of Article 191, a member of the Legislative Assembly shall be disqualified if he or she holds any office of profit under the government of India or any of the state governments, other than an office declared by law.
