New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party will raise issues including black money and the ongoing language row in the winter Session of Parliament which started on Monday, the party said today.
Bhagwant Mann, party's MP from Sangrur in Punjab, said that the party will also raise the issues pertaining to Delhi and Punjab.
"We have got inputs from the party on what strategy should be in the winter Session. The major issues the party would raise are related the government's delay in bringing back black money, contrary to what it promised during its campaign. There is no clarity on the issue and we will seek explanation from the government," Mann said.
"There are other major issues like the ongoing language row. Another would be the government's decision to reduce the age limit of those appearing for UPSC exam.
"We will tell the government that the move would prove disastrous to many aspirants, as many in the rural parts of the country come to know about the exams quite late," Mann said.
The party, which has four MPs, all from Punjab, will raise the issue of contaminated groundwater in the state and also operation of international services at the Chandigarh airport.
"Contaminated water is leading to cancer in many villages in Punjab and the problem is of a very serious nature. We also have issues related to power and water in Delhi, which we will raise during the on-going winter session," Mann added.
