KalingaTV News Network
Bhubaneswar: The Opposition parties are all set to corner the ruling BJD over several issues during the monsoon session of the Odisha Assembly beginning tomorrow.
Both BJP and Congress are likely to raise issues like the state government flouting the Supreme Court’s ruling on penalty on miners involved in illegal mining, drinking water scarcity and the failure of the government in tackling the drought situation in the state.
On the other hand, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik chaired a meeting of BJD legislators where it was decided to raise issues related to the development of the state and discuss them. A strategy was also drawn up at the meeting to counter the opposition in the Assembly.
DGP R.P.Sharma took stock of the three-tier security arrangements in the presence of Police Commissioner Y B Khurania, DCP Satyabrata Bhoi and Intelligence ADG Sunil Roy this afternoon.
As many as 25 platoons of police force under the leadership of 100 officers will guard the state assembly. CCTV cameras have been installed and barricades erected at all dharna spots around the Assembly. Police personnel in plain clothes will also be stationed at all strategic locations near the Assembly.
The eight-day monsoon session has six official and two private members’ days and will continue till September 16.
