Naidu seeks special statement on AP HC strictures
Hyderabad, Mar 17 (UNI) TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu today demanded a statement or special mention from the government on the strictures passed by the Andhra Pradesh High Court against its alleged failure to provide infrastructure for basic amenities to common people.
Speaking in the State Assembly after the adjournment motion of his on the subject was rejected by Speaker K R Suresh Reddy, Mr Naidu said as the Chief Minister and the Finance Minister were in the House, his party expected a statement or special mention on the comments made by the High Court.
While the Speaker suggested the TDP to give a notice under a different rule for the House to debate the issue as the Adjournment Motion was rejected, Finance Minister K Rosaiah recalled how the previous TDP Government failed to respond despite stictures passed by the High Court on various issues.
Rosaiah claimed the Opposition was simply trying to obstruct the proceedings of the House every day on one pretext or the other.
Though the government had an answer for every allegation, it was showing restraint as it wanted the proceedings of the House to be conducted smoothly.
He alleged TDP lacked commitment for solving the problems of farmers, handloom weavers or other poorer sections of the society and this was the reason why it was not allowing any meaningful debate on their problems in the House.
CPI(M) floor leader Nomula Narasimhaiah said both the ruling party and the opposition were wasting the valuable time of the House by making allegations and wanted the ongoing debate on the Ellampalli project to be completed today.
Soon after the House met for the day, the Speaker announced apart from the Adjournment Motion tabled by the TDP, he was disallowing those given notice of by the CPI(M), CPI, BJP and the Janata Party on various issues.
Opposition members stalled the proceedings for nearly half an hour demanding debate on their Adjournment Motions before allowing the House to take up the Question Hour.
