PANAJI: The state cabinet on Wednesday granted approval to summon the monsoon session of Goa legislative assembly from July 18 onwards.
“Cabinet has accorded approval to summon the monsoon session of Goa legislative assembly from July 18 onwards,” said CM Sawant
Goa Assembly Speaker Ramesh Tawadkar had said on Tuesday that the opposition will get enough time to discuss the state’s issues during the monsoon session of the House.
“This session will be lengthy, which would give enough time to opposition benches to discuss the issues facing the state,” Tawadkar said.
On many occasions, the opposition parties in Goa have alleged that the ruling party suppresses their voice by curtailing the duration of the Assembly session.
There are seven opposition MLAs in the 40-member Goa Assembly.
Earlier in March, the opposition parties had slammed the BJP government for curtailing the five-day budget session to four days on account of ‘Ram Navami’ celebrations.
