Panaji, June 30 (IANS) The Opposition in Goa has demanded a longer session of the state legislative assembly, in order to have a detailed discussion on budgetary demands, Leader of Opposition Digambar Kamat said on Tuesday.

Kamat's demand comes days after Governor Satya Pal Malik summoned the state legislative assembly for an 11-day monsoon session, beginning from July 27.

"The assembly should be held for more number of days, because the full budget is to be discussed," Kamat told reporters.

"When the business advisory meeting is held, we will raise this issue," the Leader of Opposition also said.

The upcoming monsoon session of the state assembly is the first legislative session since the Covid-19 pandemic broke out.
