Mumbai (Mharashtra) [India], June 22 (ANI): The Maharashtra government has planned to conduct the Monsoon Assembly session only for two days, Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the assembly Devendra Fadnavis said on Tuesday.

Slamming the move, Fadnavis said that the state government always attempts to avoid holding the Assembly under the pretext of COVID-19 situation.

"The state government always tries to ignore assembly sessions citing COVID-19. Today, the government again proposed the monsoon session for two days, while thousands of people can come for the inauguration of ruling party's offices or protests or oath-taking ceremonies," Fadnavis said.

Further slamming the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, he accused that the state government has not been discussing many issues of importance, including those of farmers and Maratha reservations.

"There are issues of farmers' and Maratha reservation among others. This government seems to be sleeping to discuss these. This is why we walked out from Business Advisory Committee meet today," the BJP leader added.

He further said that the three party MVA government (Shiv Sena, Congress and NCP) will fall automatically one day and till then the BJP will play the role of the Opposition strongly.

"The day government collapses, we will give the alternative. We believe the BJP will win with a majority in 2024," he added. (ANI)
