Multiple controversies to heat up new session of Kerala Assembly
Thiruvanthapuram: Amid multiple controversies and spike in COVID-19 cases, the second session of 15th Kerala Assembly will commence on Thursday. Though the opposition conveyed its constructive cooperation earlier, the session will likely witness heated conversations.
The UDF led opposition will likely take up issues including COVID-19 management, tree felling row, AK Saseendran’s alleged audio clip seeking amicable settlement of harassment case and the alleged Rs 100-crore fraud in CPM-ruled Karuvannur Co-operative Society Bank.
For the ruling front LDF, the discord in UDF over the decision to restructure the ratio for minority student scholarship based on population will likely to give an edge for the counter-attack.
Meanwhile, both fronts may unanimously pass resolution against Union government’s apparent centralization pursuit with its newly formed Ministry of Cooperation.
