Jaipur: The Rajasthan Legislative Assembly
is likely to witness a stormy budget session with opposition BJP gearing up to corner the state government on several issues.

We will corner the government over several issues, including poor governance, corruption of ministers among others, Deputy Leader of Opposition Ghanshyam Tiwari said.

The Session will begin from February 27 and the
Opposition has called their meeting a day before to finalise
its strategy.

"The government is poor in performance and ministers are
involved in corruption. A recent example of Khadi and
Gramodogya minister who threatened and abused a man few days
back is there to highlight," Tiwari said.

He said that the Opposition will demand a long Session to
debate on all important issues.

"We have several issues over which we will try to push
the government to the corner and we will finalise our strategy
in a meeting on February 26," he said.

Chief Whip (Congress) in the Assembly, Raghu Sharma, said
that the first meeting of Business Advisory Committee (BAC)
will take place on February 27 after the Session in which
agenda and days of sitting will be decided.

On the other hand, elaborate security arrangements have
been made in and around the Assembly premises for the Session.
