Hyderabad: The issues related to pending dues of farm loan waiver and students' tuition fees reimbursement schemes, besides the welfare programmes of TRS government and demonetisation are expected to dominate the winter session of Telangana Legislature beginning from Friday.

The main opposition Congress, TDP and BJP have been demanding that the state government release the pending installments of its farm loan waiver scheme at one go and also clear the pending dues of fees reimbursement. Clearing the dues of the two schemes is important to help the farmers in distress and also poor students who are the beneficiaries of tuition fees reimbursement, the parties have pointed out.

Asserting that it has been taking pro-active measures for people's welfare and development, the TRS government said it would like to seek active debate on its welfare programmes.

The TRS government is implementing welfare and development programmes in a way the previous Congress government never did, state Animal Husbandry minister T Srinivas Yadav said.

Referring to reports that the government would seek suspension of members who enter well of the House, Congress MLA M Bhatti Vikramarka said the move shows that the government is in defence of itself.

In a letter to Speaker S Madhusudanachary, BJP floor leader in the Assembly G Kishan Reddy sought debate on farmers' issues, reorganisation of districts, alleged delay in release of funds for its two-bed room house scheme and fees reimbursement.
