Lucknow: Assembly Elections slated for 2017 is likely to have a clear bearing on the budget session of Uttar Pradesh legislature beginning on Friday with Opposition seeking answers to people problems and government poised to present a populist budget.
As all the main political players are already in election mode, they will try to nail the government on all people's issues to gain maximum mileage.
Issues like law and order, drought, the failure of the government to revise sugarcane prices for the third successive year, prevailing dissatisfaction among farmers and alleged neglect of arid Bundelkhand region will be used to the hilt by the opposition parties to corner the government.
The Samajwadi Party government, which will present its last full budget of its five-year term, will leave no stone unturned to lure the electorate.
Governor Ram Naik will address the joint session of both the houses tomorrow. Keeping in mind the practice of opposition parties protesting during Governor's address every year, Governor Ram Naik has appealed to leaders of all the political parties to listen to his address patiently.
In a letter, he has urged that his address be heard with patience in the same manner as the address of the President of India was heard in Parliament.
According to the schedule, the budget for the 2016-17 will be presented in the House on February 12. The session is likely to conclude on March 11.
