Odisha BJP to grill govt over farmers’ issues in winter session

Bhubaneswar: Opposition BJP will aggressively raise the drought and farmer suicide issues during the forthcoming winter session of Odisha Assembly beginning December 1 and seek White Paper from the government on the two contentious issues.

It was decided in the BJP legislature party meeting held here on Sunday at party State headquarters.

“The BJP will give emphasis mostly to drought and farmers suicide cases in the upcoming winter session. Besides, teachers and bus operators’ call for strike will also be raised in the House during the session”, party MLA Pradeep Purohit said.

This apart, the saffron party is all set to grill government over diminishing law and order situation and gross irregularities in distribution of ration cards in the State. Mineral smuggling will also be made an issue, he added.
