The last session of the 15th state assembly, which begins on Monday and is likely to last two days, is expected to be stormy. The ruling BSP is likely to table the issue of division of Uttar Pradesh and the opposition SP and the BJP are planning to bring a no-confidence motion against the government.
The division of the state, however, is not mentioned in the listed business for November 21 and 22, finalised by the business advisory committee on Sunday. But according to tradition, the leader of the House, the chief minister, can move a motion when she wants.
The government has planned to divide the state into four parts — Paschim Pradesh, Bundelkhand, Purvanchal and Awadh Pradesh. As for the SP's no-confidence motion, the speaker is unlikely to accept it because such a motion should be submitted 14 days in advance.
"The BJP will meet the speaker regarding the motion," said its legislature party leader Om Prakash Singh.
The House is also scheduled to approve a R60,000 crore vote on account for April to July 2012. The vote on account is necessary in view of the assembly elections, which are to be held in the first quarter of 2012.
On Sunday, speaker Sukhdeo Rajbhar sought cooperation from all members for smooth functioning of the House at an all-party meeting. Chief minister Mayawati, who was present at the meeting, assured him of cooperation from the treasury benches.
