Congress Legislature Party leader Ajay Pratap Lallu said, “ Besides the raisisng the issue of deteriorating law and order, we will also point out at the farmers committing suicide due to loan burden but while the state government has failed to come out with a clear policy of loan waiver.
The opposition has also stated that the focus will also be on GST and its negative impact on small and medium firms. “GST today is a ‘burning issue’ and on certain items it will hurt small and medium firms. We have decided to highlight objections raised by traders against the Goods and Services Taxes,” said the SP spokesperson.
