Written by | November 12, 2014 | 0

Hyderabad: General discussion on the budget remained inconclusive as the day’s proceedings here at Telangana Legislative Assembly today were marred by verbal exchanges between the ruling TRS and opposition TDP.

The House was adjourned for a brief 10 minutes thrice and eventually for the day.

Senior TDP MLA A Revanth Reddy sought to move a privilege motion against Information Technology Minister K T Rama Rao for ‘insulting’ TDP MLAs by calling them “stooges of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu”.

In turn, the TRS legislators also demanded an apology from TDP members for alleging in the House yesterday that Nizamabad MP K Kavitha (TRS) had enrolled her details at two places during the Comprehensive Household Survey, pointing at a mismanagement in the survey.

Senior Congress MLA Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka raised a point-of-order and expressed displeasure over sidetracking discussion on the budget.

Finance Minister Etela Rajender and Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao joined the issue with the TDP legislators, leading to a din and adjournment of the House.
