Rajasthan Assembly session likely to be stormy
Jaipur, Sep 17 (UNI) The Opposition Congress in Rajasthan is contemplating to dock the Vasundhara Raje government for its alleged ''failures'' in handling various issues, including the violent Gujjar agitation, in the monsoon session of the state Legislative Assembly, beginning tomorrow.
Among the issues the Congress will take up are violent Gujjar agitation that claimed 25 lives in May and June, conviction of Minister of State for Irrigation Surendra Singh Rathore and ''indecent show'' of internal tussle within the Council of Ministers and ruling BJP, Leader of the Opposition Ram Narain Chaudhary told UNI here.
Mr Chaudhary alleged the government in the state was total failure as it failed to exhibit its sensitiveness and capability in maintaining law and order to handle delicate situations and curbing crimes and atrocities against women and weaker sections.
He alleged it was not only the issue of governance over which the state government failed miserably but Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje was equally ''ineffective'' in containing dissidence among her Ministerial colleagues.
''Ugly scenes of infightings and public outcries by dissidents are the order of the day in the ruling party,'' he alleged.
Meanwhile, the BJP legislature party which met here this afternoon at the Chief Minister's official residence, has opted to rally behind Ms Raje unitedly.
''BJP MLAs have unitedly resolved to rally behind Ms Raje to reply befittingly to all allegations and verbal onslaughts against her by the Opposition members'', Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore said after the legislature party meeting.
The monsoon session is likely to last for about a week during which five Bills will be tabled for replacement of ordinances promulgated by the government since the last Assembly session, which concluded on April 4.
The Bills, included Rajasthan Private University (repealment) Bill, Rajasthan Societies (Amendment) Bill, Rajasthan Monuments and Archeological sites and Antiquetes Preservation (Amendment) Bill, Rajasthan Panchayati Raj (Amendment) Bill and Rajasthan Public Trust(Amendment) Bill, an Assembly spokesman said.
