Raipur, Nov 25: The winter session of the Chhattisgarh Legislative Sabha, beginning tomorrow, is set to witness proceedings in 'Chhattisgarhi' as the BJP government is likely to move a bill to grant official language status to the local dialect in the state.

The state assembly secretariat has also made elaborate arrangements from this session itself to translate the debate and discussions from Hindi to Chhattisgarhi and vise-versa by deploying a team of 20 translators and installing double band earphone systems, assembly secretary Devendra Verma said.

Chhattisgarhi Rajbasha Bill 2007, which aims at providing official language status to 'Chhattisgarhi', a bill to amend the state cooperative act, and police act-2007 (amendment) bill and a bill to replace an ordinance were among the legislations expected during the winter session, scheduled to conclude on December 7.

Besides, the state government is expected to seek approval for its second supplementary demands of Rs 967 crore.

However, the Opposition Congress is gearing up to corner the BJP government during the winter session by bringing its first ever no-confidence motion against it to raise the issues, including deteriorating law and order situation and spurt in Naxalite violence.

Congress Legislature Party deputy leader Bhupesh Baghel said rampant corruption in National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS), irregularities in paddy procurement on support price, migration of agricultural labourers and controversy of grant of mining lease to private firms were likely to be raised during the session.

Mr Baghel said his party legislators would also raise the issue of attempts being made to harass tribal Congress legislator Kawasi Lakma by trying to implicate him in false cases.

On the first day tomorrow, the house will adjourn for the day after paying tributes to former parliamentary secretary Mahesh Baghel, who died in a road accident, during the inter-session period.
