The winter session of Maharashtra Legislature beginning on December 22, is likely to be stormy, as the Opposition is prepared to raise issues relating to OBC reservation, paper leakage, strike of State Transport employees and many other issues confronting the Government.
The winter session, which was scheduled to be held in Nagpur, has been shifted to Mumbai. The issue of OBC reservation issue has been rejected by the Court; the officer at the helm of affairs in carrying out recruitment tests has been found guilty of paper leakage; the Transport employees have not budged to the Government pressure.
The Opposition Bharatiya Janata Party has prepared to confront the ruling Mahavikas Aghadi (MVA) Government on these major and several other issues during the winter session.
BJP leader and Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Praveen Darekar has alleged that the MVA Government is not interested in facing the session.
The Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray is eluding the sessions, curtailing it to small periods, BJP leader Chandrakant Patil has alleged.
With Congress State Unit President Nana Patole continuously saying that the party is ready to fight elections independently, the MVA government is likely to face tough time handling the Opposition during the session.
