Telangana issue again rocks Andhra assembly
Tuesday, September 18th 2012, New York Daily News

Hyderabad, Sep 18 — The Telangana issue rocked the Andhra Pradesh state assembly for the second consecutive day Tuesday with Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) stalling the proceedings, demanding a resolution for carving out a separate state.

Speaker N. Manohar adjourned the house for half-an-hour amid noisy scenes and heated arguments among members. He later held a meeting with floor leaders of all parties but it failed to end the deadlock as TRS, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and CPI insisted on a resolution on Telangana while main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) wanted debate on electricity shortage and ‘tainted’ ministers.

As soon as the house met for the day, the speaker announced that he was rejecting adjournment motions moved by TDP, TRS and other parties on various issues. The TRS members rushed to the speaker’s podium and insisted that the resolution on Telangana be taken up immediately.

In an attempt to find a solution, the speaker sought the views of various parties on the issue. TRS floor leader E. Rajender demanded that the assembly immediately pass a resolution urging the centre to take immediate steps for formation of separate Telangana state.

When Lok Satta leader Jaiprakash Narayan told the house that IBM employees had left Hyderabad for Bangalore due to the protests over Telangana, TRS member Harish Rao raised an objection. There was heated argument between the two.

Two ministers Danam Nagender and Mukesh Goud disrupted the proceedings when independent member N. Janardhan Reddy was speaking in favour of a separate state.

Amid the din, the speaker adjourned the house and called all floor leaders for a meeting in his chamber. However, the meeting failed to find a solution.

The first day of the monsoon session had also witnessed uproar over Telangana. The TDP and other opposition parties are already agitated over the government convening only a five-day session. They feel the duration is not adequate to discuss people’s problems.

Why TRS and other MLAs are demanding a resolution on Telangana in the assembly! when their argument is that parliment should immediately pass a bill for Telangana, it is very suprising that they demand a assembly resolution first. It is seems that they themselves are not clear what they should do, they should allow the assembly to function normally, they should not forget that same obstructionist methods can be adopted by other groups who are opposing state biforcation of the state in the parliament.
