Maharashtra two-day winter session starts today

The two-day winter session of the Maharashtra legislature is starting from Monday, December 14. It is expected to be a heated session due to several reasons.

In view of the outbreak of the coronavirus, the two-day convention will be held in Mumbai instead of Nagpur, in which six ordinances and 10 bills will be tabled, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anil Parab had informed during a press conference on Sunday, December 13.

The opposition had earlier lashed out at the state government on various issues which includes reservation to Marathas, relief to farmers, development projects, and handling of the pandemic. Moreover, former Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis had earlier said that the government is running away from discussions in the House, adding that it is not possible to discuss 10 bills in such a short span. Moreover, on the eve of the winter session, the opposition boycotted a tea party organized by the government at the Sahyadri Guest House. The cabinet meeting was held after the tea ceremony.

Responding to the allegations put forward by Fadnavis, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, further asked if the use of power against the protesting farmers on the borders of Delhi was also a “declared emergency”. The three ruling parties, Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party and Congress of the MVA alliance made their intent clear by attacking the BJP-led Centre on various issues. Moreover, the MVA has been supporting the farmers’ protest and have announced that the farm laws passed by the Parliament in September will not be implemented.

As per reports, the Maharashtra government is also expected to table Maharashtra Shakti Criminal Law (Maharashtra Amendment) Act, 2020, and the Special Court and Machinery for Implementation of Maharashtra Shakti Criminal Law, 2020, the two bills for a special law for stricter action in crimes against women and children.
