''Though the government was taking up discussions on Aarogya Sri in the Assembly, the TDP was creating all sorts of disruptions in the House to stop the discussions as they had no interest to discuss various issues concerning the people,'' he alleged.

He also allege that when the government had taken up 'Jalayagnam' scheme with a view to provide wter for irrigation in remote areas to bring more land under cultivation, the TDP made several allegations on it but failed to prove even one allegation.

The Chief Ministe urged the opposition parties to extend their cooperation and suggestions in implementing various welfare schemes launched by the state government for the benefit of poor people instead of creating hurdles.

''The government had no objection to rectify any mistake in implementing the schemes as it was the responsibility of the Opposition parties to identify the mistakes of the government in a democratic set up,'' he added.
