The Assam recruitment commission for analogous posts for class 3 and 4 bill 2021 and the Assam police amendment bill 2021 are also scheduled to be introduced in the Winter Session.

The Assam government has decided to bring amendments to the cattle preservation bill after it faced criticisms from the opposition parties and other organisations.

The issue of alleged land-grabbing by Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s family is also likely to rock the Winter Session of the State Assembly.

The Congress sought an SIT probe into the alleged land-grabbing scam involving Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s wife and son.

It has been alleged that a company belonging to chief minister Sarma’s wife Riniki Bhuyan Sarma and son Nandil Biswa Sarma has illegally grabbed government land.

Raijor Dal president and Sivasagar MLA Akhil Gogoi has also demanded a high-level probe into the allegation.

The news drew the attention of all after an investigative report was published by The Wire and The Crosscurrent recently. The investigation was carried out by the news outlets jointly.
