PANAJI: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.
