Delhi Assembly begins on a stormy note
New Delhi: The budget session of Delhi
Assembly on Monday got off to a stormy start with BJP MLAs
vociferously taking up the issue of price rise while the
government making it clear that holding Commonwealth Games
successfully is its top priority for now.
When Lt Governor Tejinder Khanna started his customary
address in the assembly, most of the BJP MLAs started shouting
anti-government slogans accusing it of "failure" in reining in
price rise and "corruption" in implementation of various
Games related projects.
Wearing robes printed with anti-government slogans,
the BJP MLAs tried to disrupt Khanna`s speech but he kept on
speaking amid sloganeering by the opposition.
Outlining the priorities of the government, Khanna
said the city government has braced itself to make necessary
arrangements to make the Games a spectacular event.
"This year we have the honour to host one of the
biggest sporting extravaganza of the world in the month of
October. The government has braced itself to make all the
necessary arrangements to make the Games a spectacular event,"
he said in his nearly 40-minute speech.
Listing the initiatives taken by the Government,
Khanna said the transport system in the city is being upgraded
by introducing low floor buses into the DTC fleet besides
improving major arterial roads.
