BHUBANESWAR: The second phase of the Budget session of the Assembly beginning from April 26 is likely to be stormy as the opposition political parties, Congress and BJP, are planning to corner the Government over links of ruling party leaders with chit fund scam-tainted companies and gangsters Dhal Samanta brothers.

However, the opposition parties cannot directly discuss the chit fund scam in the House because of a ruling by the Speaker describing it as sub-judice. Leader of the Opposition Narsingh Mishra said Congress will demand a discussion on the nexus between politicians and criminals.

Besides, the Opposition will also take up issues of acute drinking water scarcity across the State and the Government’s failure to tackle the situation. As the issue has already been discussed once during the session through an adjournment motion notice, the Opposition will have to discuss water scarcity in some other format.

The Congress Legislature Party will meet on Monday to finalise issues to be taken up during the session.
