Chennai, Jan 22 (UNI) A stormy session is on the cards when the Tamil Nadu Assembly meets tomorrow with Governor's customary address to the House.

The opposition, led by the main AIADMK has geared up to raise a host of issues like the alleged infiltration of LTTE and the DMK government's ''soft attitude'' towards the banned outfit.

Governor Surjit Singh Barnala, in his address to the House, is expected to announce new schemes, lined up for the year 2008-09 and give a detail account of various welfare schemes implemented after the DMK came to power in May 2006.

A new district with Tirupur as headquarters is likely to be announced by the Governor. The Chief Minister, while declaring Tirupur as a Corporation had announced that a new district would be formed and a formal announcement would be made in the Assembly.

Assembly Speaker R Avudaiyappan told newspersons that four bills to replace ordinances, issued when the Assembly was not in session, would be introduced during this session.

He said after the Governor's address, the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) would meet tomorrow afternoon and decide about the business and the duration of the session.

Sources said that the House, after adopting a motion, thanking the Governor for his address, would adjourn and reassemble after a gap of fortnight or a month for the presentation of budget for the year 2008-09.

The state budget would be presented after the presentation of the Union budget, the sources added.
