Hyderabad, Nov 4 (UNI) The winter session of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly will begin tomorrow even as the Opposition parties were busy finalising strategies to corner the Congress Government by raising 'anti-people' policies adopted by the state government during the session.

The main Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was holding discussions with party leaders and MLAs on taking up issues pertaining to farmers and hike in the 'Minimum Support Price (MSP) of paddy to Rs 1,000 per quintal.

It was also keen to raise the alleged corruption in 'Jalayagnam Programme' and sky-rocketing prices of essential commodities, a party leader said.

The Left parties, which had launched a protracted struggle demanding the government distribute lands to the poor, would raise implementation of K Ranga Rao Land Committee Recomendations.

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), an estranged ally of the Congress, would focus on alleged encroachment of Waqf lands and problems faced by the backward Telangana region.

The All India Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), fighting for the cause of Muslim community welfare, would demand reservation for them in education and govenrment jobs.

However, the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) had prepared strategy to thwart the attempts of the Opposition to diminish the the government's image.

All documents relating to development programmes were being distributed to all Congress MLAs to clear the allegations.

Meanwhile, security had been tightened at the Assembly premises in the wake of recent twin bomb blasts.

More than 1,000 security personnel would be deployed in and around Assembly premises during the session.
