TRS forces adjournment of Assembly for second consecutive day
Hyderabad, Aug 24 (UNI) The Telangana Rashtra Samiti(TRS) forced the adjournment of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly for the second consecutive day today demanding the House to pass a resolution recommending to the Centre to form a separate Telangana State.
TRS was on a war-path, following the resignation of party Central Ministers K Chandrasekhara Rao and A Narendra from the United Progressive Alliance(UPA) Government.
Soon after the House met this morning, the Speaker K R Suresh Reddy announced that five adjournment motions given notice of by opposition parties, including the one by the TRS were disallowed.
The TRS members, who came into the House with placards shouting 'Jai Telangana, Jai Jai Telangana' slogans, rushed into the podium and climbed the steps leading to the Speaker's chair.
Utter pandemonium prevailed due to the sloganeering of the TRS members. Though TRS floor leader Dr Vijayarama Rao, stood and spoke before the microphone, his words were drowned in the din.
The Speaker repeatedly requested the agitating members to resume their seats and allow the House to function. He assured that the issue raised by them could be discussed in the House.
As the TRS members were bent on the resolution and continued to disrupt the proceedings, the Speaker adjourned the House for an hour.
