Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has ruled out allocation of constituency development fund to legislators this year citing financial difficulties.

Responding to appeals of several MLCs in the Council for allotting the fund to them along with MLAs on Tuesday, he said that it was not possible this year for legislators from both the Houses. He, however, promised to consider the demand in future when the issue was raised during a discussion on privileges and protocol of MLCs. The Opposition members also sought the fund soon after Question Hour in the Assembly.
