CM criticies Opposition for stalling proceedings

Written by: Staff

Hyderabad, Mar 17 (UNI) Rejecting the opposition TDP's demand for extending the Assembly proceedings for conclusion of the debate on the Sripadasagar Project, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today objected to the Opposition parties stalling the proceedings on small issues.

''It is unfortunate that the opposition held the House to ransom'' and even did not not allow Home Minister K Jana Reddy, who was ready with the report from senior police officials, to announce the action taken'', he told the Assembly.

Recalling that the House used to be adjourned at 1330 hrs when during the regimes of N Sanjeeva Reddy and K Brahamananda Reddy even if they were speaking, he said that ''Lot can be discussed if the House is in order.'' He came down heavily on the Opposition parties for giving adjournment motions every day and stalling proceedings when the Speaker disallowed them.

Despite repeated pleas of the Congress while it was in the opposition, the House did not not sit for 60 days in a year with the then Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu maintaining that it would not not be possible to extend the sitting beyond 50 days because of other administrative works, Dr Reddy pointed out.

His Government was aware of its commitment to the people and the house sat for 51 days last year and it would sit for 52 days this year, he said.
