The winter session of Maharashtra Legislature will commence here from tomorrow with issues such as the demand for passing the Anti-Superstition Bill and Adarsh scam likely to generate heat during the proceedings.
Affirming his government`s commitment to pass the Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Bill in winter session of Legislature beginning next week, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan today said talks are still on with those opposing the long-pending legislation.
The onus of passage of the Anti-Superstition and Black Magic Bill in the ensuing winter session of Maharashtra legislature is with the state government, son of slain rationalist Narendra Dabholkar said here on Monday.
Even as police claim that probe into the murder of rationalist Narendra Dabholkar was on the "right track", no concrete clue to the August 20 broad daylight slaying seems to have emerged a month after the incident that jolted the progressive social movement in Maharashtra.
A 10-member delegation of various political leaders and activists on Tuesday sought the Maharashtra Governor`s intervention to bring the killers of renowned rationalist and activist Dr Narendra Dabholkar to justice.
Speaker Dilip Walse Patil informed the members that he would give a ruling on Khadse`s notice later. "Under the principles of natural justice, it is appropriate that the minister is allowed to explain his action first," he said.
