Odisha Assembly's winter session likely to be stormy

Bhubaneswar: Winter session of the Odisha Legislative Assembly starting from Tuesday is likely to be stormy with the Opposition planning to corner BJD on several issues while the ruling party is all set to counter members of the Opposition parties.
