On the issues to be raised by the opposition during the upcoming autumn session, Sangma said there are too many issues and the opposition will be putting their heads together on how to prioritise the issues.

“It is incumbent upon the members, particularly the opposition, to draw the attention of the government and see for course correction wherever is needed and press for action on matters of public importance,” he said.

He further said, “Since there are too many issues, we will have to see how to effectively utilize the time and effective floor management but that will again be determined on the overall how the members of the august house like to participate because when we say private members business it is not only the members belonging to the opposition it also includes members belonging to the ruling conglomeration. Therefore, we will have to see how best we can utilize this available time for the larger interest of the people and the state”.
