Chhattisgarh's Assy session likely to be stormy
Raipur, July 8 (UNI) The Chhattisgarh Assembly's Monsoon Session, beginning here tomorrow, is likely to be stormy with the opposition Congress gearing up to mount an onslaught on the BJP regime on various issues including ''fake'' encounters in naxalism-affected tribal Bastar district.
The Session, scheduled to conclude on July 19, could witness noisy scenes with the Opposition raising the issue of a wheat scam -- the related Report was tabled in the House on the Budget Session's last day.
The Opposition would seek a debate on the Report that indicted a few bureaucrats for violating Supreme Court guidelines regarding non-inclusion of contractors in a scheme for supplying dalia to anganwadis.
Congress Legislature Party Deputy Leader Bhupesh Baghel told UNI that his party's MLAs would press for detailed discussion on numerous ''fake'' encounters in Bastar and a spurt in rebel activities during which Maoists blew up power pylons.
Pointing out that the Congress would also raise the issue of increasing crime in jails, he said, ''the CLP will be meeting tomorrow morning to chalk out a strategy to be adopted during the Session.'' The Government is expected to seek approval for its Second Supplementary Demands for about Rs 900 crore and table the Police Act. A few other bills are also expected to come up for discussion.
