AGARTALA, Feb 3 � The 10-day Budget Session of the Tripura Assembly would begin on February 6, official sources confirmed here on Tuesday.
Finance Minister Bhanu Lal Saha will table the Budget for 2015-16 financial year on February 10, according to business schedule for the upcoming Budget Session.
The Business Advisory Committee (BAC), which met on Tuesday, cleared the business for the ensuing session, Congress MLA Gopal Roy, who was present in the BAC meeting, said. Besides the tabling and approval of the Budget for 2015-16 financial year, a Bill seeking establishing of a state-run university would be tabled in the House for consideration. The Budget Session will end on March 3.
If the Bill gets House nod, the State government plans to launch the university � proposed to be named Maharaja Bir Bikram University � from the next academic session. Tripura has two varsities � Tripura Central University and ICFAI University.
According to political analysts, the Budget session would be stormy with the Opposition Congress legislators contemplating to pile heat on the government over the corruption issue.
The multi-crore rupee scam in Bishalgarh RD Block, RMSA scam and financial irregularity in CMO Office in Unakoti district are likely to dominate the House proceedings during the upcoming session.
While the Opposition is insisting on a CBI probe into the Rs 17-crore Bishalgarh scam, the government had ordered a departmental inquiry into the NRHM scam in CMO Office, Unakoti district. Moreover, the Opposition MLAs are also likely to attack the Treasury Bench on the chit fund issue as the CBI has dropped several important cases due to faults on the part of the government.
Sources said, the Congress Legislator Party would meet on Wednesday to prepare its strategy for the Budget Session. All the party MLAs were asked to be present in the CLP meeting to prepare a roadmap for the upcoming session.
