The decision was taken on Thursday at a Cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. "The Cabinet has decided to convene a one-day Special Session of Delhi Assembly on 9 September to discuss a range of issues including governance in the national capital," a senior government official said.

Last month, the Kejriwal-led government had also called a four-day session during which the Assembly ratified Goods and Service Tax (GST) Constitution Amendment Bill, becoming the third non-BJP-ruled state to do so.

The House had also passed Luxury Tax Amendment Bill under which there will be no tax on hotel room rent up to Rs 1,500.
