Convening of Assembly demanded to discuss the pressing issues
The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has alleged that the State government is not convening Assembly session taking a shelter under constitutional provisions. If the Assembly is convened the party will announce its decision on moving no-confidence motion. If the Assembly session is convened, the government fears that its failure will come to the fore, according to party Polit Bureau member K. Yerrannaidu.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, the TDP leader said the Opposition had been asking the government to convene the Assembly session to discuss issues that were rocking the State. However, the Congress was not for convening the House during the last six months, he observed.
Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy was behaving like Nero while half of the State was reeling under drought. Mr. Reddy never visited the drought-hit mandals though the government declared 450 mandals drought hit. The people lost faith in the government as it failed on all fronts. It did not implement the Rs. 302-crore loan waiver package to weavers announced earlier. The scholarships to students were withdrawn. The medical and health facilities were not within the reach of commoner. The development had come to a grinding halt, he said. The government was foisting false cases against the opposition parties' leaders for raising these issues at the Racchabanda, a mass contact programme, which turned out be a mere flop show.
