HYDERABAD: The monsoon session of the Legislative Assembly will commence on August 25 even as the ruling Congress is gearing up to take on a united Opposition that is planning to corner the government on crucial issues facing people.
The short ten-day session is set to witness heated debates on various issues ranging from allegations on irregularities in the implementation of the Indiramma housing, sub-standard works in Jala Yagnam, lacunae in the loan waiver scheme and the social audit that has revealed lapses in the rural employment guarantee programme are likely to be raised by the Opposition.
All-party meet held
An all-party meeting convened by the Left parties and attended by the TDP and TRS here on Saturday resolved to ensure effective floor coordination as it was the only way to “expose” the government. As many as10 ordinances will be replaced with Bills while two new legislations will be introduced.
Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy and Legislative Affairs Minister K. Rosaiah warned the officials against any complacency in briefing the Ministers concerned about the issues facing their departments and preparing replies to queries raised by members.
Efforts should be made to start government business from the day one to avoid scope for criticism from the Opposition that the Treasury Benches intentionally delayed it to avoid discussion, Mr. Rosaiah said.
