At the same time, he took a dig at the government for having fewer working days in the monsoon session and accused the government of evading questions.
BJP MLA Bhanu Pratap Shahi said that this time the government has shortened the monsoon session. This is not good for the state. Till now in the fifth assembly, the House has been running without a leader of the opposition.
This monsoon session is also expected to go on without the Leader of the Opposition. So far the names of the Leader of the Opposition have not been revealed. In such a situation, speculations are still being made that this session may not be conducted without the leader of the opposition.
However, in the event of Babulal Marandi’s name not being talked about, a fresh discussion has started of other big BJP leaders getting the responsibility. If this happens, the shadow eclipse regarding the Leader of the Opposition will go away.
Significantly, the BJP has nominated Babulal Marandi as the leader of the BJP Legislature Party and recommended him as the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly. But Babulal has not yet received the approval of the Leader of the Opposition due to the defection case going on in the Speaker’s Court.
As of now, the names of CP Singh, Bhanu Pratap Shahi, Anant Ojha and Raj Sinha are coming from the forward for the Leader of the Opposition, while the names of Viranchi Narayan, Ramchandra Chandravanshi and Amit Mandal are from the backward.
