AGARTALA, May 19 (TIWN): When various scam related issues are hitting the ruling CPI-M Govt then, BAC meeting declared 3 day long Assembly on May-23, May-24, May-25. However, this special Assembly will be focused on GST bill passing, that decided by Tripura Govt to be launched on July 1st. However, with the GST passing, various other issues to be discussed face to face among the ruling and opposition party MLAs with the latest 13000 posts created by Education Dept. The BAC meeting was hoisted by Dy Speaker Pabitra Kar, Minister Tapan Chkaraborty, Minister Manik Dey, Opposition MLA Gopal Roy, MLA Asish Saha remained present in that meeting. However, state eagerly waiting for the leaders' debates on crucial issue which will decide the fate of many in coming days.

However, in case of GST also  heating arguments may take place, which was signaled at Pragna Bhawan during GST workshop held ahead of GST launching decision.

A GST Dissemination workshop held at Pargna Bhawan chaired by Finance Minister Bhanulal Saha and opposition MLAs, generated debate regarding the Central Govt's profit from GST implementation in Tripura. Congress MLA Ratan Lal Nath raised question, why no resource person is chairing the workshop who can ease the GST issues to the public. The MLA further raised question, whereas "Traders with a turnover of less than Rs 10 lakh a year won’t have to register for or pay the goods and service tax (GST)", will Tripura in coming day virtually pay any taxes ? However, the programme was fully controlled by Tripura Govt Officials, whereas they could easily invite some NITI Aayog members from New Delhi or resource person. Question also raised by the MLA, "Will Tripura Govt try to 'stand on its feet' ever ? or being the Northeastern State it will continue to beg money from the Central Govt ?"

MLA Ratan Lal Nath raised question whereas it is a good initiative by Central Govt for relaxating taxes below 10 lakhs, but will Tripura Govt attempt to raise the business up or it will continue to draw the funds without contribution ? "Is that mean, Central will continuously give us money... but we will not give anything in return", said Nath.

Apart from GST the issue of 13000 new posts will be highest debating issue in this Assembly Session. The talk on bogus posts created by Tripura Govt will be opposition's main topic to hit the ruling CPI-M Govt.

Also various cases as Anuara murder case, Rose Valley, 10323 all will be huge topics for debates.
