CHENNAI: The budget session of the Tamil Nadu Assembly will begin from June 14 and is likely to last for over a month.  However, the exact duration of the session will be decided by the Business Advisory Committee of the House which will meet on June 14.

Finance Minister D Jayakumar presented his maiden budget in the State Assembly on March 16.  

Due to the by-election to RK Nagar Assembly constituency, the session lasted till March 24 with the passing of ‘vote on account’ Bill seeking moneys for the state government.

The ensuing session will be a stormy one, with principal opposition party DMK waiting to raise a host of issues - drought relief to farmers, the Tamil Nadu government’s silence on the Centre’s  new rules on sale of cattle, bribery charge against social welfare minister V Saroja, dairy development minister KP Rajenthra Bhalaji’s charge against private milk companies, etc.  The GST Bill will also be introduced in this session.

The session begins as the ruling AIADMK has virtually three factions headed by chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, former chief minister O Panneerselvam and close aide to former CM J Jayalalitha, V K Sasikala’s nephew,  TTV Dhinakaran.
