Uproar on the first day of Maharashtra winter session

Nagpur: The awaited Maharashtra Legislature’s winter session in Mumbai had a stormy start-off with the ruling MahaVikasAghadi (MVA) government and BJP clashing on various issues.

The session which was supposed to be held in Nagpur was shifted to Mumbai due to the health condition of chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. An uproar was witnessed when the BJP decided to raise issues like suspension of 12 BJP MLAs in the monsoon session this year.

Other than this, inflated electricity bills, farmers compensation package was also brought up by the opposition. Maharashtra Home minister Dilip Walse Patil tabled the select committee report in the state assembly on the Shakti Bill which aims to curb crime against women and children in the state.

Shiv Sena leader and MLA Bhaskar Jadhav during a discussion regarding the power issue in the state started imitating Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Upset with the move, BJP leader and former chief minister Devendra Fadanavis accused Jadhav of mocking the prime minister and asked him to apologise. However, Jadhav later apologised in the house after two adjournments, saying that the hand gestures were his ‘natural way of speaking.’

The legislative rules committee of the assembly also recommended that the speaker’s election should be held through voice note instead of secret ballot. The report was tabled by senior Congress leader Prithviraj Chavan.

To oppose MVA’s notice to reduce the time frame for the objections and suggestions on the report of the legislative rules committee from 10 days to one, BJP staged a walkout. The opposition even termed the ruling party as the ‘most insecure government.’
