Bangalore, Jun 22 (UNI) Opposition parties in Karnataka will train their guns on the new BJP government for police firing on agitating farmers that claimed one life and acute scarcity of fertilizers during the four-day session of the state legislature beginning tomorrow.

The spate of suicides by farmers, including seven during the last one week and the death of a BJP MLA's wife Padmapriya , will be the other major issues expected to figure prominently.

The Special Session of the 13th Assembly held for four days from June three, was adjourned for tomorrow after Governor Rameshwar Thakur addressed the joint session of both the Houses and Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa won the trust vote.

In its second sitting from tomorrow, the Assembly would adopt the motion of thanks to the Governor's address.

The opposition Congress and the Janata Dal(S) would raise the issues of farmers taking to streets and indulging in violent protests in many parts of the state.

On June 10, the police firing on agitating farmers in Haveri town resulted in the killing of a farmer and five others sustaining bullet injuries.

The Congress has already stated that it would raise the BJP government's failure in handling the issue of shortage of fertilisers and the farmers agitation. The two opposition parties, will be on their toes to put the government on the mat over the recent incidents.
