M K Stalin demands to convene the state assembly to discuss critical issues
DMK president and opposition leader in the state assembly, MK Stalin, advised CM Edappadi K Palaniswami to summon the state assembly to talk over the critical problems regarding Tamil Nadu as soon as possible. The problems include drinking water trouble, failure to get Karnataka to release Cauvery water from Mettur dam for ‘Kuruvai’ crop, and suicides committed by students held their failure in NEET amid others.
Stalin said that the assembly, after forwarding the state’s budget, has not been summoned again to take up demands from the individual departments. This has resulted in a near lack of performance of the state government. “It is increasingly becoming a norm in Tamil Nadu, under this government, that even to take up basic issues for discussion the opposition has to mount pressure to convene the state assembly,” Stalin stated.
