Brief UP legislature session to start tomorrow
Lucknow, May 10 (UNI) A brief session of the Uttar Pradesh legislature, beginning here tomorrow, is expected to be a stormy one with the Opposition grilling the Mulayam Singh Yadav government on various issues, including power, the Meerut fire tragedy, Communal riots in Aligarh and other issues.
On the opening day tomorrow, state governor T V Rajeshwar will address the joint session of both the houses.
The government would table the first supplementary grants for the current financial year in the assembly on May 12. The assembly is expected to end on May 19 after passage of vote of thanks on the governor's address.
The house, which is expected to witness some crucial debate on power, wheat purchase crisis and law and order situation in the state, is also likely to adopt bills related to reservation in the higher education institutes.
Leader of the Opposition and BJP legislature party leader Lalji Tandon said here that Opposition would certainly grill the government over power crisis, fire in the Meerut consumer fair and communal riots in Aligarh.
'' The people of the state are frustrated with the poor law and order situation in the state and it is our duty to raise the people's problem in the house,'' he said.
Congress legislature party leader Pramod Tiwari also maintained that the government has failed in all the fields and the members will seek reply from them on the peoples' problem.
However, state Revenue Minister Ambika Choudhury claimed that the law and order situation in the state was better than other states of the country and said that the government had taken several initiatives, particularly in the power sector to solve the people's woes.
Meanwhile, the state assembly might also witness some noisy scenes over the appointment of the second principal secretary in the house in order to cut down the powers of the present secretary.
