Hyderabad: The ruling Congress in Andhra
Pradesh on Friday alleged Telugu Desam has given the notice of
no-confidence motion against the government only for political
"Telugu Desam has given a single line notice for moving
the no-confidence motion. It did not say how the government
has lost the confidence. It shows that they are doing it only
for political purposes and not out of concern for people`s
welfare and development," state Legislative Affairs Minister D
Sridhar Babu told reporters here.
The TDP issued a notice to Assembly speaker Nadendla
Manohar for moving a no-confidence motion against the Congress
government on Thursday.
The TDP said the government should come forward for the
debate on the no-confidence motion.
"If the government is sincere, then they should come
forward for debate on the no-confidence motion. If the debate
takes place, burning issues like distress of farmers, law and
order, the fees reimbursement of students belonging to SC, ST,
minority and other backward classes would be discussed," TDP
MLA D Umamaheswara Rao said.
TDP`s Telangana Forum leader E Dayakar Rao said the
no-confidence motion is an opportunity for the Telangana
leaders to target the Congress government as it has not kept
its word on the formation of separate Telangana.
Incidentally, TRS, fighting for separate Telangana, has
also moved a no-confidence motion against the government
