Oppn set for onslaught on govt as Legislature session starts tomorrow

Armed with several issues including rising sexual assaults on minor girls in Bengaluru schools and "tainted ministers", the Opposition is raring to haul the Congress government over the coals, as the 10-day winter session of the Legislature begins here tomorrow.

Setting the stage for a major offensive, the BJP has announced a programme to lay seige to "Suvarna Soudha", where the session will be held amid tight security, on the opening day of the session.

The BJP is insisting on dropping "tainted" ministers Dinesh Gundu Rao, Qamarul Islam, H S Mahadeva Prasad and K J George against whom it has made several charges ranging from corruption to land grab.

The party, which has accused the Siddaramaiah government of being in "slumber", is also taking up the cudgels for sugarcane growers in Belagavi district, considered the sugar bowl, to whom the sugar mills owe huge amount in arrears.

JDS of former Prime Minister H D Deve Gowda, which is itself facing internal trouble with reports of fissures among its legislators, is also expected to follow its own course in taking up issues without being seen to be in cahoots with BJP.

Meanwhile, Assembly Speaker Kagodu Thimappa today said the opposition should debate and discuss issues to find a solution to people's problems and not take agitational path.

The legislature session is being held in Belagavi since 2006 when the JDS-BJP coalition was in power. This is the fifth such session.
