MUMBAI: Maharashtra Congress chief Ashok Chavan today expressed displeasure over performance of the party legislators in the ongoing monsoon session of state legislature.

Chavan had convened a meeting of the party's legislative affairs committee to take a stock of its legislators' performance in both houses of the state legislature this evening.

A senior leader said on the condition of anonymity that Chavan was peeved as the party did not keep up the attack on the BJP-led government over allegations of corruption against some ministers, and also regarding the government's refusal to waive farm loans.

Congress must be more aggressive and get into the attack mode against the ministers who are facing allegations, Chavan said.

Former Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan, Manikrao Thakre, Patangrao Kadam, Naseem Khan and leader of opposition in the Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil attended the meeting.

Congress and NCP had decided to have floor coordination to corner the government on corruption and farmer suicides issues, but the government continued with legislative business for the first two days despite the opposition's boycott of the Assembly.

After Congress and BJP entered into a post-poll alliance in Gondia zilla parishad, an annoyed NCP broke ranks and participated in the Assembly proceedings.

Congress legislators would stage a protest tomorrow morning on the premises of the legislature complex and raise the corruption allegations against BJP ministers in both Assembly and Council, the Congress leader said.
