CHENNAI: The Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly, which will convene on January 5, will broadcast the question hours live telecast. The live telecast of Assembly proceedings was an electoral agenda of the DMK govt.

The Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin, had already informed the Assembly during the budget session that a live transmission would be held during the Assembly's January session.
In terms of the Assembly, the DMK's primary election promises were live telecast of Assembly proceedings, 100 days of session each year, and resurrecting the Legislative Council. The Assembly hall is making preparations for a live transmission to television channels. The events of the question hour would be televised live from January 5 onwards, according to sources in the Tamil Nadu Assembly.
