Ranchi: Chief Minister Arjun Munda on Thursday believed that the monsoon session of Jharkhand assembly would function smoothly even as the opposition decided to raise the controversial coal bloc allocation issue.

"I believe the house will function smoothly and take up all important issues of the state," Munda told reporters ahead of Friday’s session.

 Jharkhand Vikas Morcha (Prajatantric’s) Legislature Party Leader Pradip Yadav, however, said the issue of corruption would certainly be raised in the session.

"We expect serious and sincere replies from the government," he said.
His party MLA Arvind Singh said party President Babulal Marandi’s recent demand for a probe into the 27 coal block recommendations made by the Madhu Koda and Arjun Munda
governments between 2004 and 2008 would certainly be raised.

Reminding Marandi’s tenure, Senior BJP MLA and former Deputy Chief Minister Raghuvar Das said, "Babulal Marandi should not forget mineral allotments made during his regime spanning Nov 15, 2000 to March 2002."

CPI (ML-Liberation) MLA Vinod Kumar Singh said he would also raise the coal block recommendation issue during debates.
