Raipur, Nov 25: Opposition Congress is all set to move a no-confidence motion against the nearly four- year- old Raman Singh government in Chhattisgarh during the winter session of the legislative Assembly beginning here tomorrow.

Congress legislature Party deputy leader Bhupesh Baghel told to the sources that his party legislators were gearing up to mount an onslaught against the BJP government through a no-confidence motion to highlight its various omissions and commissions and failures, including in maintaining law and order.

This will be the first no-confidence motion against the Raman Singh government, which had assumed office in December 2003 in the maiden assembly elections held after Chhattisgarh was carved out of Madhya Pradesh in November 2000.

Pointing out that corruption was one of the main issues to be raised during the debate on the no-confidence motion, Mr Baghel said rampant corruption in National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (NREGS) and the controversy over granting mining lease to M/s Pushp Steel would be raised in the assembly.

Alleging irregularities in procurement of paddy on support price from the farmers, the CLP deputy leader said his party legislators would raise issues including instances of corruption in procurement in which the state government did not take any concrete action against those involved in it.

Expressing serious concern over the problem of migration from the rural areas despite implementation of NREGS, Mr Baghel said the police in state capital had intercepted three containers and rescued more than 300 people from them while they were being taken to Uttar Pradesh to work in brick kilns.

''This incident was a clear indication that administration in districts have failed to properly implement NREGS, forcing people to migrate to other states in search of jobs'', he added.
