Munda upset over short session

Ranchi, Feb. 17: Leader of Opposition in the state Assembly Arjun Munda has said that the Hemant Soren government’s decision to convene a budget session of only 13 working days was an attack on democratic values and parliamentary standards.

In a letter to governor Syed Ahmed today, the former chief minister argued that the governor’s address to the House was one of the most important components of the budget session.

But, a discussion on the Governor’s address would be held only in the afternoon sitting of February 20.

The third supplementary budget is scheduled to be passed by the House on February 20. Thereafter, the main budget for 2014-15 will be tabled in the second sitting. There will be no Question Hour on March 7. The Assembly session will be held during February 19 and March 7.

“Elected representatives may not be getting adequate opportunities to raise issues of common interests in the House and air their views on a wide ranging issues, he added.
