Chhattisgarh assembly winter session from tomorrow
Raipur, Nov 19 (UNI) The winter session of the Chhattisgarh Vidhan Sabha, beginning here tomorrow, is expected to be a low-key affair in view of the ongoing electioneering for by-poll in Kota assembly constituency from where Mrs Renu Jogi, wife of former Chief Minister Ajit Jogi, is contesting her maiden election.
During the 12-day session, scheduled to conclude on December one, the state government is expected to move and seek approval for second supplementary demands.
As Kota by-election, scheduled for December four, has become prestigious for both the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress with the presence of Mrs Jogi in the fray. Leaders of both the parties are likely to devote more time for campaigning during his period when the assembly is in session.
Meanwhile, Congress Legislature Party (CLP) deputy leader Bhupesh Baghel told UNI that the dates for the winter session of the assembly was finalised before announcement of by-elections for Kota seat.
Pointing out that there was a move to curtail the session in view of by-poll, he said opposition Congress was not in favour of it as they have a lot of issues of public interest to raise during the winter session.
