A short session of the Legislative Assembly will be held from September 14, in which a resolution banning the entry of central agencies into Bengal will be introduced. Assembly Speaker Viman Bandopadhyay said on Monday that the motion on the motion was tabled in the assembly.
‘A climate of fear is being created’
The Speaker said that there will be a discussion in which the members of the Treasury Bench and the Opposition will participate. An atmosphere of conflict and fear is being created in the state. Officials from central agencies visit people’s residences at odd hours. After discussing the matter, the resolution can be passed.
The BJP working committee boycotted the meeting
The resolution was decided to be tabled in the Assembly Working Committee meeting held on Monday, which was attended by Speaker and Deputy Speaker Ashish Bandopadhyay and several ministers and MLAs of the ruling party. However, none of the BJP MLAs who are members of the working committee attended the meeting. Coming out of the meeting, Parliamentary Affairs and Agriculture Minister Sovandeb Chattopadhyay said the proposal would be discussed on September 19.
The President criticized the BJP
The Speaker criticized the opposition members of the working committee for abstaining from Monday’s meeting. He said, ‘We too were on the opposition bench for a long time. Despite differences of opinion with the then Vidhan Sabha Speaker, we attended the meetings called by the Speaker. In a democratic system there are certain customs that we should not ignore.
