Protest against Speaker K.R. Suresh Reddy's decision to abruptly adjourn the House

  • Government not serious about business of House'
  • TRS stages protest against appointment of APPs

    HYDERABAD: A spate of demonstrations were staged in the Assembly lobbies on Friday as parties protested against Speaker K.R. Suresh Reddy's decision to abruptly adjourn the House without transacting any business.

    The Telugu Desam Party staged a demonstration near the Speaker's chambers while the Left parties sat at one of the entrances to the Assembly.

    Separately, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) members staged a dharna in front of Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy's chambers against the appointment of Additional Public Prosecutors in violation of the Presidential Order.

    Telugu Desam Party deputy leader T. Devender Goud expressed anguish that the House was adjourned so early in the day.

    It had never happened in the past.

    He said the Government was not serious about the business of the House being transacted.

    He alleged that the Government wanted to prevent a question listed for the day on irregularities in construction of Pulichintala project from coming up.

    The Government also feared that the TDP would press taking up the notice of breach of privilege it had tabled against Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, on Government Order Rt. No. 938, the anti-media order.
