Yeddyruppa government facing tempestuous Assembly session
Bangalore, Feb 24 (ANI): The Congress and the Janata Dal-Secular (JD-S) are likely to slam the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government in the state on a large number of issues including the slow development of relief works in the flood destroyed areas, deteriorated power supply and the fresh attacks on churches in the budget session which begins on Thursday.
The BJP led government in the state has already been facing the revolt of the farmers for its steps taken to acquire agricultural land across the state in the name of creating 'land bank' for allotment to the investors.he state government is expected to have a tough time in trying to convince the opposition.
JD(S) supremo and former Prime Minister H D Devegowda, who has taken on the Yeddyurappa government for allegedly providing excess land to NICE company and its action of acquiring 1.71 lakh acres, has already visited parts of the state opposing land acquisition, a campaign dubbed by the Chief Minister as 'inciting farmers against the government'.
The campaign that was began by Devegowda and his son H D Kumaraswamy, the former Chief Minister of the state has got a good response, which is a cause of worry for the Yeddyruppa government.
Despite Yeddyurappa's repeated assurances that his government was not acquiring vast tracts of land, the unconvinced farmers are up in arms and are supporting Devegowda.
The opposition parties are anticipated to target the government for its failure to maintain law and order in the state.
They are also expected to take up the issue of proposed legislation to ban cow slaughter in the state.eanwhile, Congress leader Siddramaiah, who has to his credit the feat of presenting seven budgets in the state, is likely to quiz the government on the financial situation.
However, Chief Minister B SYeddyruppa, who also holds the finance portfolio has kept mum on the criticism, asserting that the 'revenue collections are good'.
Yeddyurappa will present his third successive budget on March 5 in the state assembly. (ANI)
