IANS  |  Agartala 

The last session of the outgoing Assembly, prior to the state going to polls in February next year, will begin here on Monday, Deputy Speaker of the House said on Thursday.

"The session would be held for two days and it would be the last session of the outgoing assembly before the February (2018) elections," Kar told IANS after the Business Advisory Committee meeting.

The advisory committee, which is headed by Assembly Speaker Ramendra Chandra Debnath, on Thursday finalised the schedule of the assembly session.

The Left-ruled would see elections in February next year, along with Congress-ruled Meghalaya and Naga People's Front-led Democratic Alliance of Nagaland-governed Nagaland. The Democratic Alliance is supported by the Bharatiya Janata Party.

The five-year terms of the Meghalaya, Nagaland and assemblies would expire next year on March 6, 13 and 14, respectively.

Ahead of the assembly elections, hectic political activities have already begun in the three northeastern states, with 60 assembly seats in each state.
