New Delhi: Assam is set to get a legislative council nearly 66 years after it was abolished, post Independence.

A meeting of the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, on Thursday approved a proposal to create a Legislative Council in Assam, which has been a long-pending demand of various political parties and ethnic groups of the state.

Assam had an Upper House which was abolished after Independence.

According to the proposal, the Legislative Council will have 42 members. (PTI)
