Focus on severe power shortage, fee reimbursement and problems faced by the farm sector
The monsoon session of the Assembly and the Legislative Council, beginning Monday, are expected to be a stormy affair with the Opposition gearing up to corner the government on the severe power crisis and many other issues. Besides, the acute power crisis, which has badly hit industry and agriculture, the conditions imposed on the fee reimbursement scheme, problems faced by farmers like shortage of fertilizer, among others, figure on the agenda of the Opposition parties. The Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes Sub Plan legislation will not figure in the five-day session as the government preferred to hold a special session on the issue after the conclusion of the Convention on Biodiversity being held here between October 1 and 19.
A decision to this effect was taken at the BAC meeting of the Legislature held here on Sunday.
Interestingly, Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, who was away in Mahbubnagar, and Opposition leader N. Chandrababu Naidu did not attend the meeting.
