What to expect from Maharashtra Legislative Assembly’s two-day Monsoon Session?

The 2-day Monsoon Session of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly is set to begin on Monday. The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government is expected to table 3 major proposals, with the opposition claimed to stir things up.

The BJP is anticipated to voice their discomfort over 2 critical cast quotas of Marathas in jobs and education, as well as, OBC’s in local bodies being quelled by the Supreme Court in the past three months. Apart from this, the resolution of the ruling coalition to put the election of the Speaker on the back burner coupled with the alleged connection of Deputy CM Ajit Pawar and former Home Minister Anil Deshmukh to the money laundering scandal being investigated by the ED may be brought up.  

Taking this head-on, the MVA is likely to seek empirical data of OBC’s in the state from the Centre. They are also claimed to demand immediate action by the Centre on the Maratha quota and oppose the Centre’s 3 farm laws, with the possible tabling of the farm law amendment bills.

A cabinet minister also stated that the suicide by an MPSC aspirant who was shortlisted for an interview but faced a delay in the process due to a court order was also discussed in the cabinet. The government is said to make a statement in regards to the same.

Meanwhile, the government is predicted to table supplementary demands, with an apparent proposal of 5 bills, one of them being an amendment to the Maharashtra (Urban Areas) Protection and Preservation of Trees Act, 1975 for the safeguard of heritage trees.  

Sources in the government also claim that 20 more decisions, including one on the resolutions, were taken in the Cabinet Meeting, chaired by the CM. Post this three-hour meeting, the usual trend of addressing the media was not followed which sparked speculation. However, ministers addressed this by stating that this occurred because the media had left by the time the meeting concluded. However, this statement hasn’t done enough to answers the milieu of controversies surrounding the collation government.
