Ahead of new Uttar Pradesh assembly’s first session which is scheduled to take place on Monday, the Bharatiya Janata Party legislature party met on Sunday to discuss its strategy to counter the expected opposition onslaught and also to highlight the achievements of the government in its nearly two months in office, reported news agency PTI. The first session of the new UP assembly is expected to be a stormy affair by the agency as opposition parties are planning to take on the Yogi Adityanath government on the law and order front.

BJP dominates the assembly massively with 325 sitting MLAs. On the other hand, the opposition has only 74 MLAs to make its voice heard in the 403-member house.

– According to news agency PTI, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) has also prepared the strategy within their legislative parties to corner the government.

– Bharatiya Janata Party’s entire election campaign was based on law and order situation but since losing the polls earlier this year, both Akhilesh Yadav and BSP leaders have attacked the new government on the same.

– Another issue that can be raised by opposition parties is of caste and communal disturbances in Bulandshahr, Saharanpur, Gonda and Sambhal, reported PTI.

– Even though SP managed to win just 47 seats in this year’s election, Akhilesh Yadav had said party’s morale is high and it will target the government on the law and order front.

– Another major issue that will be discussed can be of state bill for implementation of the GST, for which a workshop will be held here for all MLAs and MLCs on Monday to provide them with adequate information on the matter.

You may also want to watch:

– The session will begin with Governor Ram Naik addressing a joint sitting of the state legislature where he is expected to highlight the achievements of the government.

– This will be the first time in years, that no one from SP patron Mulayam Singh Yadav’s family will represent the party in the Lower House as Akhilesh has named Ram Govind Chaudhary as the Leader of the Opposition.

– Another interesting sight would be that Swami Prasad Maurya and Rita Bahuguna Joshi who have previously served as leader of Opposition and a Congress MLA, respectively, will be sitting on the treasury benches this time as BJP ministers.

– It will also be interesting to watch whether Akhilesh attends the session — he is a member of the Upper House but had rarely attended proceedings when he was the chief minister, as per the agency.
