The monsoon session of the Maharashtra legislature will be held from June 27 to July 12, an official said on Friday, reported the PTI.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC) on Friday.

The state budget will be presented on June 28, the official said, according to the PTI.

The interim budget was tabled in February due to the Lok Sabha elections 2024.

This session of the Maharashtra legislature in Mumbai will be the last one before the state heads to assembly polls due in September-October.

Genuine introspection and strategy needed to revive BJP's fortunes: Fadnavis

Meanwhile, in the wake of the BJP's Lok Sabha tally coming down from 23 to 9 in Maharashtra, senior party leader and state Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday stressed the need for genuine introspection and a strategy to revive the saffron outfit's fortunes, as per the PTI.

Addressing a meeting of the party aimed at taking stock of the results of the Lok Sabha elections 2024, Devendra Fadnavis claimed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lost several seats due to polarisation.

"We require a strategy and genuine introspection. Just analysis is not enough," he said.

"Heavens have not fallen. We got only two lakh votes less in the state, while in Mumbai we received two lakh more votes. BJP was ahead in 130 assembly segments. But there was tremendous polarisation," the former chief minister said.

There was a false narrative that the BJP would change the Constitution if voted to power. This narrative was strong in the first three phases. But we countered this narrative well after the three phases. Hence, we (Mahayuti alliance) could win only four out of the 24 Lok Sabha seats in the first three phases and bagged 13 of the 24 seats in the remaining phases," he claimed.

The Mahayuti alliance comprising BJP, Shiv Sena (led by Eknath Shinde) and NCP (led by Ajit Pawar) got 17 out of the total 48 Lok Sabha seats in Maharashtra, while the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) comprising Congress, Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) and NCP (Sharadchandra Pawar) secured 30 seats of the total 48 seats.

Devendra Fadnavis asked the party cadre to start working for the upcoming state assembly elections by maintaining its present vote share.

"If we increase our vote percentage even by one per cent, we will sweep the assembly polls," he added.

Accusing the opposition parties of spreading several false narratives against the BJP, Devendra Fadnavis asked the party office-bearers and leaders to strongly counter them.
