Mukul Sangma said the opposition will look at how to effectively utilise the time provided for the members of the House.
“So we hope that the autumn session will definitely be a productive one,” he said.
Asked on the issues to be raised by the opposition during the session, Sangma said there are too many issues and the opposition will be putting their heads together on how to prioritise these.
He said it was incumbent upon the members, particularly the opposition, to draw the attention of the government for course correction wherever called for and press for action on matters of public importance,” he said.
“Since there are too many issues, we will have to see how to effectively utilise the time and effective floor management but that will again depend on how the members would like to participate,” he said.
