Apprehending the forthcoming assembly monsoon session to be of only two days, the main opposition party Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) on Saturday held that they were prepared to take on the ruling Congress on issues pertaining to rampant corruption and worsening law and order situation.

INLD leader Abhey Chautala and state president Ashok Arora told mediapersons that even though speaker Kuldeep Sharma did not allow the opposition MLAs to speak in the assembly in the previous session and sent them out of the House by naming them, they would still take up several issues in the forthcoming session. “The Congress does not have courage to face us,” Chautala said.

“Yet, we have sent several questions in the assembly and we would be calling attention and adjournment motions on various issues concerning people of the state,” he said.

The two INLD leaders said the main issues they would raise in the assembly pertained to rampant corruption, power and water crisis, worsening law and order situation, land scams, DLF-Vadra land deal, Rajiv Gandhi Trust, non-availability of textbooks in government schools, repeated increase in power tariffs and regional bias in development.

Even a few Congress leaders, including Rao Inderjit Singh, Birender Singh, Kumari Selja, Rajpal Bukhadi and Naresh Selval, had been openly protesting against chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda against regional bias, the two INLD leaders added.
