Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Assembly remained paralysed for the third day Wednesday, as there was no let up in main opposition Telugu Desam Party`s (TDP) demand
for dismissal of six "tainted ministers".

A defence-less government appeared content with
repeated adjournments of the House, as the treasury benches wore a deserted look due to poor attendance of members, including the ministers.
The TDP and the other opposition parties persisted
with their demand that the government place files related to
the 26 controversial Government Orders, doling out undue
favours to certain companies and individuals, who in turn
invested huge funds in businesses promoted by Kadapa MP Y S
Jaganmohan Reddy, and dismiss six ministers involved in the
whole affairs.

As the TDP members rushed into the Well of the House,
Speaker Nadendla Manohar adjourned the proceedings first for
15 minutes.

A similar scene was witnessed when the House re-assembled after an hour, leading to the second adjournment
for 30 minutes.
Legislative Affairs Minister D Sridhar Babu met TDP
leader Payyavula Keshav in the Assembly lobbies and requested
the opposition to let the House run smoothly. "It all depends
on your actions and reactions," Keshav reportedly told the

Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and Leader of
Opposition N Chandrababu Naidu were away campaigning for their
party candidates in the by-elections.
