BHOPAL: Madhya Pradesh Assembly's Winter Session beginning Monday is likely to be stormy with opposition Congress deciding to corner the government on state Professional Examination Board (PEB) scam and other issues.

"We are going to raise the PEB scam, rampant corruption, outbreak of dengue, manure and seeds black marketing, lawlessness and financial distress prevailing in the state," Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly Satyadev Katare told PTI today.

However, state Assembly Affairs Minister Narottam Mishra refused to divulge the ruling BJP's strategy to counter Congress' barbs aimed at putting the government on the mat.

During the five-day session, scheduled to conclude on December 12 after five sittings, the BJP government will place supplementary budget.

Assembly Principal Secretary Bhagwandev Israni said 19 private Bills, 4 adjournment motions, 102 call attention motions, 41 zero hour questions, 807 starred and 580 un-starred questions, among other issues, are likely to be taken up during the session.

The Assembly building has been given a facelift with Rs 5 crore, almost 20 years after it was built.

The 105-feet high dome of the Assembly building has been whitewashed. It was a big task as it needed expertise, Israni said.

For this, he said, machines from Mumbai were brought to reach the tall dome. It was after a gap of 20 years that the dome was whitewashed.
