The Monsoon Session of State Legislative Assembly and Council will begin from September 17, an official notification said here today.  The session was likely to last for five days and expected to be a stormy one.

According to two separate notifications issued by the state government on Saturday, Governor ESL Narasimhan, in exercise of power conferred by the Clause (1) of Article 174 of the Constitution of India, summoned the Assembly and Council to meet for 10th and 17th session respectively on September 17 here.

The monsoon session is likely to be a stormy one, as the Opposition parties are expected to corner the state government on the power crisis and fee reimbursement issue. In ordinate delay in holding polls to local bodies, implementation of high court’s verdict on the same issue without decreasing the 33 per cent quota of reservations for BCs may also dominate the session.

Non-acceptance of the resignation of roads and buildings minister Dharmana Prasada Rao, who resigned on August 14 after the CBI had named him in the fourth charge sheet in the Vanpic land case, may also   put the state government in a tight spot during the session.

The issue of releasing of water from Nagarjuna Sagar dam to Krishna delta farmers, shortage of fertilisers and seeds may also give tough moments for the treasury benches during the session. The government is likely to hold a discussion on SC/ST sub-plans in monsoon session.
