Budget Session: Opposition Draws Plan To Corner Government On Many Issues


Bhubaneswar: The Budget session of the Odisha Assembly, which will commence from tomorrow is all set to start on a stormy note as both the opposition parties, the Congress and the BJP, have made preparations to corner the Naveen Patnaik government over several issues including farmers’ problems and law and order situation.

Addressing media persons at the party office here after the BJP legislature party meeting, Padampur MLA Pradip Purohit said, “In the budget session, we will raise the issues of farmers and state government’s inability to address farmers’ issues among others.”

“In the recent past, as many as six farmers committed suicide. The state government has miserably failed to distribute input subsidy to the farmers which was sent by the Centre through SDRF funds. The farmers have not received the crop insurance amount also,” the BJP MLA alleged.

The BJP leader also pointed out that, the government had formed “Biju Yuva Vahini” on taxpayers’ money but it has allegedly been engaged to promote the political activities of ruling party. “We will raise such issues among others,” he said.

The main opposition party Congress has also decided to raise the issues of deteriorating law and order, farmers’ plight, rising unemployment, drinking water crisis among others.
