Agartala, Aug 24 (UNI) The monsoon session of the Tripura assembly, which begins tomorrow, has been curtailed to two days.

The opposition Congress has strongly criticised the Manik Sarkar- led CPI (M) government for curtailing the current assembly session.

Opposition leader Ratanlal Nath told UNI today, ''The state government's decision is really condemnable as the session would be only on on August 25 and 28.

He further alleged that curtailing of sessions had been a regular feature in the state.

In 2006, the assembly was called for 13 days only, Mr Nath said.

He further said that already 1500 questions were filed by the legislators during the current assembly sessions.

Mr Nath further said questions pertaining to 29 departments would not be raised due to shortage of time.

He said that in a meeting conducted by the MP's and MLA's in 2001, it was decided that small states like Tripura assembly must convene for at least sixty days every year.
