Bhopal, Jul 6 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Assembly's five-day monsoon session, getting underway tomorrow, seems all set to be turbulent one with the main opposition Congress and others trying to place the government in the dock over ''flaming issues'' such as the violence at Indore and other places besides corruption.

The session would be the last of the state's 12th Vidhan Sabha as elections are scheduled this year.

Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Jamuna Devi alleged ''The law and order situation is deteriorating even as the power, water and roads scenarios are dismal. Recently, communal tension flared at Jabalpur and other places. The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party will be asked to reply on the medicine scam, Income-Tax raids on residences of families of ministers and officials, Annapurna Yojana scam, no power supply to farmers and other citizens, paucity of fertiliser and seed,'' she said.

Alleging corruption by those occupying key state government posts, the Congress leader mentioned atrocities against minorities, women, dalits and self-immolation by a trader in Satna district after being targeted by Bharat Bandh supporters on Thursday.

Official sources said that preparations were complete for the session. Notices were received for 893 questions, 540 of them being starred questions. Besides, 152 call attention notices, 23 adjournment notices, 18 private members' bills and 39 zero hour notices were received. About half-a-dozen key bills are also likely to be presented.
