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.
