KOLKATA:

West Bengal Assembly's budget session is going to begin from March 8 and issues like farmland acquisition for industry, starvation deaths at tea gardens and the two-month-old jute strike is likely to be brought up by the opposition, Trinamool Congress and Congress.

Issues of acquisition of farmlands at Singur, on going violence at Nandigram and starvation deaths at tea gardens in North Bengal have been the burning topics of the day and will be brought up by his party, said the Leader of the Opposition, Partha Chatterjee of Trinamool Congress.

"We will put the Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee government in the dock on these issues," he said.

Manas Bhuniya, leader of Congress Legislature Party said that issue of starvation deaths has been raised by his party repeatedly, but State Government has not responded.

Chief Minister Buddadeb Bhattacharjee has not been able to find time to solve the two-month-old jute strike issue. The Governor visited the tea gardens and saw the worker's condition, he said.
