The Budget session of Orissa Legislative Assembly will have to bear with war of words on central negligence to Orissa, as comprehended by the treasury side on the one hand and criminal corruption in every sphere of the State administration, such as the specifically exposed felony of supply of contaminated food to school kinds as well as expectant mothers by the state government, on the other.
The legislative wing of the Congress party – recognized Opposition in OLA – will blow hot to strip the government layer by layer in the floor on supply of poisonous dal and inedible food under the central government funded Mid-day Meal and Supplementary Nutrition Programs and looting thereby the central fund for years together without any check. It shall also harp on its old demands for action against tainted ministers, which had concussed the last session so severely that proceeding with its business had become impossible.
The National Congress Party, till recently official ally of BJD, will also put on records its disapproval of corruption that has engulfed administration in its entirety in Orissa.
Ruling BJD in its legislative wing has decided to use as its armor the cold-shouldering of Orissa by the Congress-NCP coalition government in the center.
Besides the Budget, the government has intention to bring into assize 8 different bills.
