Speaker R. Selvam has reconstituted the Business Advisory Committee of the Legislative Assembly by including Opposition leader R. Siva after his non-inclusion from the list of members published in the notification on Friday drew flak.
In suppression of the first notification, the Assembly Secretariat on Saturday issued another notification including Mr. Siva in the members list taking the total strength of BAC to 7.
