New Delhi, Nov.8 (ANI): The Winter Session of Parliament, that will begin from Tuesday, is likely to be a quite stormy affair, as the Opposition is all geared up to raise many important issues and try to put the Government on mat through issues of scams.

The Opposition is geared up to bring to the fore the issue of corruption by raising "various scams" including the Adarsh housing scandal.

Speaker Meira Kumar has convened a meeting of leaders of all political parties on the opening day to ensure a smooth session.

The National Democratic Alliance (NDA) has threatened to stall the proceedings if "strong action" was not taken against all the guilty in the Adarsh housing scam.

In fact, the Adarsh scam has become an ideal issue for the Opposition to target the ruling party with Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan's alleged links proving to be an embarrassment for Congress.

The Opposition is also expected to utilise the opportunity to seek a discussion on the outcome of the US President Barack Obama's visit, including the assurances given by Washington on key issues.

While the floor strategy of the Opposition is unclear, the BJP-led NDA as also the Left parties have indicated that they would raise the issue of scams thoroughly. (ANI)
