While the Opposition’s armoury is full, the State government says that it is prepared for any kind of warfare.
Opposition political parties in the State are gearing up to confront the ruling Congress with glaring public problems during the forthcoming Assembly session.
The Assembly is scheduled to commence from September 17.
The Opposition has a bagful of issues and will be glad to unload them on the ruling party. Issues pertaining to power, farmers and students are likely to figure prominently during the course of the session.
While the main opposition TDP and the newly emerged YSRC are planning to launch an all-out attack by raising problems of farmers, students, power crisis, BJP and left parties are planning to corner the government by raising the separate Telangana issue.
TRS TO SKIP T
Interestingly, TRS, the third largest political party in Telangana region after Congress and TDP, and champion of separate Telangana is likely to skip its main issue, a separate Telangana, during this session.
“We may not raise the issue during this session. We are planning to highlight the power crisis prominently this time. We will also corner the government on the other problems,” said TRS MLA Koppula Eeswar.
The reason for this seems to be the extended stay of TRS president K Chandrasekhara Rao in Delhi since the last few days. Before leaving for Delhi, KCR had announced that a favourable statement for creation of separate Telangana would come from the Central government before the end of this month.
Eeswar further said that the legislature party would finalise its agenda by convening an official meeting two days prior to the commencement of the house.
TDP has said that its agenda would be to raise glaring public problems. “We will raise all public issues as we are facing anger from the our people. Our focus would be to seek redresses of problems faced by farmers’ community, student community in the case of fee reimbursement and removal of power crisis,” TDP senior MLA Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy told Postnoon.
Speaking on their preparation for the session, CPI floor leader Gunda Mallesh said that they would highlight all public problems especially the issues faced by Singareni collieries employees. “We will also be at the forefront in raising separate Telangana issue,” he said.
The Left is likely to hold a meeting in the next few days.
Prepared for the session
The ruling government is preparing the ammunition to face the opposition parties on various issues.
“We are ready for the session. We will not run away from opposition parties’ criticism. If there are any faults. We will accept them and try to convince the opposition parties by putting forth the facts,” legislative affairs minister D Sridhar Babu told Postnoon.
