Opposition is planning to target the government on the Nanar refinery and farm loan waiver issues.
Mumbai: Nagpur, the second capital of Maharashtra, is all set to host the state legislature’s monsoon session from July 4. Opposition is planning to target the government on the Nanar refinery and farm loan waiver issues. It is planning to put the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Shiv Sena on the mat over their conflicting stands on the Nanar refinery project, the statewide ban on use of plastic and the bullet train project. Nagpur will be hosting the monsoon session of state legislation after four decades. Usually the winter session takes place in Nagpur.
The opposition has cleared that it will corner state government over number of issues wherein ruling partners, BJP and Shiv Sena are flexing muscles against each other. On Nanar, Sena leadership has cleared that it won’t allow state government to install a brick of the project. Over farmers' loan waiver, Shiv Sena has decided to make an audit of the scheme. Party's senior minister Diwakar Raote is reaching out to all major districts of farmer suicides and finding out the benefits of the scheme. This definitely will put BJP in the line of fire.
Meanwhile, a senior BJP leader said the government is expecting a smooth session. “The session is likely to take up various bills, including an amendment to provide higher compensation to farmers and expedite the process of land acquisition for highways across the state,” parliamentary affairs minister Girish Bapat said.
