Mumbai, Nov 1 (UNI) The Shiv Sena today said that it was contemplating boycott of the winter session of the Maharashtra Legislature which begins in Nagpur from November 19.
Addressing the media here today, Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Assembly Ramdas Kadam described the Government's move to advance the session in view of the Gujarat elections as ''unconstitutional''.
''The announcement of the winter session beginning from December 3 was made with the consent of all group leaders in the Legislature and the Governor on the floor of both the houses in July during the monsoon session. The Government cannot take a decision on its own to change the dates. We are in consultation to study the legal and technical aspects and whether we can boycott the session. We will be talking to the BJP as well,'' he said.
Mr Kadam also said that Parliamentary Affairs Minister Harshvardhan Patil had spoken to him about the Government's move to advance the session and he on behalf of the Shiv Sena had said that the Party would not object if the ULC repeal resolution was not brought for discussion.
''But, the debate has been listed on the first week of the winter session itself,'' he added.
