TDP submits evidence documents to Speaker
Hyderabad, Mar 3 (UNI) The opposition Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh (TDP) today submitted as evidence, documents to prove alleged changing of hands of more than Rs 400 crore in the award of contract for the Sripadasagar irrigation project.
The TDP MLAs raised the issue immediately after the budget session began in the Assembly and interrupted the proceedings.
Speaker K R Suresh Reddy said that ''the TDP should submit the evidences to him and I would seek a report from the government'' at the earliest.
Not satisfied with the Speaker's response, the TDP members stalled the proceedings for a while by arguing with the Speaker that the government should place all files before him immediately.
