BJP, Opposition parties gear up for a stormy Legislative Assembly Session in Haryana

UP Legislative Assembly

Along with the Congress, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has also become active in Haryana ahead of the state Legislative Assembly’s Monsoon Session which is slated to begin on 25 August. Speaking to party legislators in a meeting of the BJP’s Legislature Party ahead of the session, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar gave them tips and directions for the session.
The Chief Minister instructed the MLAs to come “fully prepared” for the session. All party ministers, along with the MLAs were present during the meeting. Another meeting of party legislators has been called again for today, a day before the session.
There are chances of a stormy monsoon session and the party is preparing to deal with an uproar that may arise. The reason for this is some such issues of the state for which the Opposition Congress has made a special strategy. Recently, former CM Bhupendra Singh Hooda called a meeting of the Congress Legislature Party to discuss the proceedings of the session. The former CM has again called a meeting of the CLP just a day before the session.
Twelve Haryana districts were affected by floods during this year’s monsoon season. Along with the loss that amounted to crores of rupees due to the rains and flooding, 46 people lost their lives. Farmers have taken to the streets, demanding compensation for crop damage due to floods. Controversy has also stirred regarding the recruitment of 32,000 government posts. All of these issues are expected to be heard in the House. Sixty-one Haryana MLAs have sent 655 questions for the session. Of these, 396 are starred and 259 are unstarred questions.
