TDP, CPI demands govt extend Assembly session
Hyderabad, Aug 25 (UNI) The opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) today demanded that the government extend the Assembly session for a week to dicuss the issues of drought situation , Outer Ring Road (ORR) and prevalence of Chikunguniya in the state.
Speaking to reporters here, after the Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) MLAs stalled Assembly proceedings demanding an adjournment motion on Telangana, TDP senior leader and former Home Minister T Devedra Goud alleged that the government had seen the House adjourned for the last three years to avoid the discussion on people's issues.
Alleging that the ruling Congress party and the TRS had cheated the Telangana people by not implementing promises made during the elections, he said the government should accept the TRS demand and allow discussion on Telangana in the Assembly.
Pointing out that the TRS MPs were to raise the Telangana issue in Parliament, TDP senior leader Y Ramakrishnudu said 'the Assembly had a procedure to adopt a resolution on Telangana. He alleged that the government had adjourned the House without responding to the TRS demand'.
Demanding that the government allow a debate on Telangana and extend the working days of the present session, CPI floor leader C H Venkat Reddy said the government was responsible to answer the people on continuous adjournment of the House.
