Banerjee spoke of forming a legislature in Bengal and the promise of just-concluded state elections formed part of the TMC manifesto. Opposing the proposal, the BJP legislature party argued that the purpose of the proposal was to follow “behind-the-scenes politics” to help party leaders get elected to parliament despite losing the assembly polls. State treasury. Most states either do not have higher houses or have already canceled them. The real reason behind the TMC’s plan is to ensure that leaders who have failed to win the Assembly elections have access. “On the one hand, the state is saying that it does not have the funds, but the formation of this assembly will put an additional pressure of Rs 90-100 crore every year,” Leader of the Opposition Suvendu Adhikari told PTI. Adhikari defeated Mamata Banerjee in the high-profile Nandigram constituency and will have to become an MLA within the next six months.

We have done our job now “the people will decide,” he said. Responding to the BJP, ISF MLA Nowshad Siddiqui alone opposed the proposal by putting “pressure” on the state’s treasury. The TMC government had earlier proposed in the state assembly to form a legislature after coming to power in 2011. However, the proposal was accepted, and a committee was formed. The committee gave its report, and it was decided that a decision would be taken to form the Legislative Assembly. But, for unknown reasons, the resolution was never adopted. The West Bengal Legislative Assembly was established in 1952 and was abolished in 1969 during the United Front government.
Now, the proposal will need to be approved by the governor and then a bill will have to be passed in parliament. Following which it must be sent to the President for approval so that a Legislative Assembly can be formed. There are currently six state legislatures, namely Maharashtra, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Bihar.
