On Monday, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha stated that the Opposition will discuss concerns such as unemployment, inflation, and central agency raids during the second part of the budget session.
Talking to ANI ahead of the start of the proceedings of the day, Kharge said, “Opposition leaders will bring up every issue including unemployment, inflation and raids by ED-CBI. We will take the opinions of all opposition leaders to form a strategy”. “The government agencies are troubling the opposition leaders so much, without any empathy towards Lalu Prasad Yadav, a senior citizen and his daughter in law who is pregnant. The agencies are free to perform their duties but doing it for vengeance and being politically influenced is wrong,” Kharge said.
He also attacked BJP accusing it of gaining sympathy from the people of Karnataka.
“PM Modi is just busy in gaining sympathy from the people of Karnataka. We are just asking about their work, about what have they given to the people of Karnataka. They expect to take up the entire credit just by connecting two ends of a road. We constructed the road to connect Mysuru for the tourists. If one likes to talk, he must not lie at least,” Kharge further said.
The second part of the Budget Session beginning on March 13 will continue till April 6. During this period, the demand for grants will be discussed and the Union Budget, which was presented on February 1, will be passed.
The government will be also list a number of the key legislations for introduction and passage.
