Hyderabad, Sep 20 (UNI) Expressing strong objection to the way voting was taken up on the no-confidence motion against Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly Speaker K R Suresh Reddy, the Opposition TDP, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), CPI and CPI(M) today sought Governor N D Tiwari's intervention to arrest the ''disturbing decline'' in the standards of the conduct of Assembly proceedings.'' Submitting a memorandum to the Governor, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly N Chandrababu Naidu and other leaders alleged that the state government was not allowing the Speaker to run the House impartially.

Mr Naidu said TDP MLA Karnam Balram Krishnamurthy was suspended from the House for six months, though, in such cases, the practice was to suspend the member for a maximum period of one session.

Moreover, the TDP MLA had made the ''objectionable remark'' elsewhere and not in the House, he pointed out.

The Governor assured the Opposition party leaders that he would look into the Assembly proceedings of September 15.

The TRS was upset over the Speaker ''delaying'' a decision on the petition, submitted by the party seeking disqualification of 10 dissident Legislators.
