DH News Service, Bangalore:
The Council took shape during Mysore Wodeyars rule in 1907 . It was then called the Representative Council. The first session meeting of the Council began at Jaganmohan Palace in Mysore in July 1907, exactly a hundred years ago.

 The Karnataka State Legislative Council, on Thursday, completed 100 years.

The Council took shape during Mysore Wodeyars’ rule in 1907 . It was then called the Representative Council. The first session meeting of the Council began at Jaganmohan Palace in Mysore in July 1907, exactly a hundred years ago.

Legislative Council Chairman Prof B K Chandrashekhar remembered the past glory of the House as the session proceedings began on Thursday.

He said, during the earlier days of the Representative Council it was a house for those who paid higher taxes. The Diwan was acting as the chairman of the council during that period. }
