Shillong, Nov 5 (UNI) The short Winter Session of the Meghalaya Legislative Assembly, starting from November 7, is expected to be stormy with the allegations of Mining and Geology Minister Donkupar Massar assaulting labourers.
Other issues that would dominate the Assembly session are the government expenditure on senior BJP leader L K Advani's 'Vijay Sankalp Yatra', excess political appointments and delay in implementing Education Policy.
''We will question the government on the action taken against Mr Massar who had allegedly assaulted labourers at Borsora in West Khasi Hills district,'' Congress Legislator and spokesman R C Laloo said.
Mr Massar has been accused of assaulting four labourers in Borsora in West Khasi Hills district and also Pongtung village headman Wallambok Lyngdoh in East Khasi Hills district on October 3 and 4.
Two separate FIRs have been filed against Mr Massar in Ranikor police station in West Khasi Hills and Pynursla in East Khasi Hills district.
The Minister, however, had secured anticipatory bail from Khasi Hills Autonomous District Council Court in the case.
''We will demand the government to allow the police to interrogate the minister,'' Prof Laloo said.
Meanwhile, the Opposition Congress criticised the government for cutting short the Assembly session to five days instead of a week as scheduled earlier.
The Autumn Session will conclude on November 13.
