New Delhi: The winter session of Delhi
Assembly beginning tomorrow is expected to be a stormy one as
opposition BJP plans to come down hard on the Government on
issues such as bus fare hike, increase in water tariff and
rising prices of essential commodities.

Despite its limited strength, the BJP has already decided
to bring in a no-confidence motion against the Government
alleging its "total failure in every front".

"We will not spare the government. The Chief Minister and
her Government have become insensitive to peoples` problems,"
Leader of Opposition in the Assembly V K Malhotra said. The
BJP has 24 MLAs in the 70-member house.

Indicating a stormy session, he said BJP legislators
would do everything possible to put pressure on the Government
to withdraw the hike in bus fare and water tariff.

"The citizens are witnessing unprecedented difficulties
in the last couple of months and we will raise all the issues
affecting the common man," the BJP leader said.

The session to be concluded on December 16 will sit for
six days during which the Government will table two amendment
bills.

Through the VAT amendment bill, the Government plans to
increase value added tax on several items as the tax
collection in the current fiscal has been very disappointing.
