AP CM warns TRS of stern action if it creates L
Hyderabad, Aug 24 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy today warned that the government would take stern action against those, who disrupt law and order and create anarchy.
Speaking to newspersons after the Assembly was adjourned for the day due to disruption by TRS members, who wanted a resolution recommending to the Centre to create separate Telangana state, Dr Reddy said it was unfortunate that the TRS chose to stall the proceedings of the House.
The people were observing the acts of every party and would not support anarchy.
Replying to questions, the Chief Minister said the government would not remain a silent spectator if anyone tried to create anarchy and the law would take its own course to ensure public safety.
Condemning the stalling of the Assembly proceedings by the TRS members, the TDP and the CPI(M) however alleged that the Congress was trying to utilise the situation to get advantage.
Senior CPI(M) member Thammineni Veerabhadram told reporters in the lobby of the House that the Congress was deliberately allowing the TRS to disrupt the proceedings as it did not want a debate on vital issues like implementation of 610 GO and the land acquisition in and around the city raised by other opposition parties.
He questioned the ruling party why it did not suspend the TRS members and conduct regular business.
TDP Deputy Floor Leader Dr Nagam Janardhana Reddy alleged that the government was using the TRS move to its own advantage as it wanted to avoid a debate on the flood situation in some districts and drought in other districts besides the problems of the displaced persons due to land acquisition.
Dismissing the TRS claim that they were for the development of Telangana, Janardhana Reddy questioned former Union Ministers K Chandrasekhara Rao and A Narendra, why they could not achieve a package as was announced by the Centre for Vidarbha region in Maharashtra, despite being Central Ministers.
TRS member Nagesh said the TRS was not against a debate on the Telangana issue. His party wanted the Assembly to pass a resolution and hence insisted on it, he added.
Besides citing to include the Telangana issue in the Common Minimum Programme (CMP), the Congress should explain why a sub-committee headed Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee was appointed to look into the demand for the creation of a separate Telangana state, Mr Nagesh demanded.
Congress member Indra Karan Reddy told reporters that it was the Congress which spearheaded the movement for separate statehood for Telangana and recalled that 41 MLAs of the party belonging to the region went to New Delhi to press their demand much before the TRS was born.
He said the Rajasekhara Reddy government was completing irrigation projects in the Telangana region on a war-footing and making efforts for all-round development of the region.
