BJP Complains To Maharashtra Governor Over Decision On Monsoon Session
The opposition BJP on Wednesday met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari to complain against the state government's decision to hold the monsoon session of the legislature for two days next month, which he said was taken with the sole intention to avoid uncomfortable questions from the Opposition on various issues.
Speaking to reporters, Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis also said the BJP also requested the governor to postpone the next month's elections to five Zilla Parishads and bypolls to the seats in 33 Panchayat Samitis that were rendered vacant and converted into general category following the Supreme Court's verdict of quashing OBC reservation in local bodes.
He alleged the state government was purposely delaying the election to the post of the state Assembly Speaker in the violation of norms.
Mr Fadnavis alleged the Maha Vikas Aghadi government is selectively using COVID-19 pandemic to "save its skin".
