GUWAHATI, Dec 9 � The winter session of the Assam Legislative Assembly, which begins tomorrow, is likely to start on a stormy note with the Opposition parties gearing up to put the Government on the back foot on several major issues concerning the people of the State.
However, it is still not clear whether the Opposition parties will be able to maintain floor coordination by setting aside their differences.
The opening day of the five-day winter session of the Assembly will witness an announcement of the business advisory committee�s report by the Speaker.
The issue of scheduling of the six indigenous communities which was rejected by the Register General of India is likely to dominate the winter Assembly sessions. These six communities have resorted to various agitational programmes to realise their demand for recognition as Scheduled Tribes under the Constitution of India.
Another major issue will be the rehabilitation process of the violence-hit people in the Bodoland Territorial Autonomous District (BTAD). The recent spate of killing of rhinos by poachers is also likely to be raised by the Opposition.
The supplementary demands for grants for various State Government departments will come up for discussion during the five-day session.
The Opposition is also likely to raise the issue of controversial MLA Enamul Haque Laskar, whose name was mentioned in the suicide note of irrigation department official Mothur Chandra Nath.
December 11 has been earmarked for private members� business while the rest of the days are slated for government business.
The Congress Legislature Party met this afternoon to formulate its strategies to face the Assembly session.
As the arrival of Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi from Kolkata was delayed due to late running of the flight where he was travelling, the meeting was chaired by Revenue Minister Prithibi Majhi, Congress sources said.
