Maharashtra Leader of Opposition (LoP) and former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis has accused the Maha Vikas Aghadi government in the state of trying to avoid an Assembly session.

The winter session of the Maharashtra legislature will be held in Mumbai instead of Nagpur on December 14 and December 15. A decision to that effect was taken during a business advisory committee (BAC) meeting held on Thursday.

Days of the session have been curtailed in light of the novel coronavirus pandemic and precautionary measures.

However, the Opposition in Maharashtra seems unhappy with the decision. Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Maharashtra Assembly Devendra Fadnavis alleged that the state government did not seem interested in the session at all.

“Government has announced a two-day session which is not agreeable to us. We had demanded at least a two-week session. There are so many problems being faced by the state today. Farmers are under stress and they are not getting the help needed. There are atrocities committed on women and other issues which we wanted to discuss in the session and that some solution be drawn after discussion but the government is not interested in any discussion on any issue.”

Devendra Fadnavis also said the first day of the Assembly session will pass tabling agendas and there would be only one day to discuss matters at length.

Shiv Sena leader Anil Parab said the situation in Maharashtra is not conducive enough for a longer Assembly session owing to Covid-19 restrictions. This is why it was decided that a two-day session would be held, Anil Parab added while refusing to comment on the charges levelled against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s government by the Opposition.
