Hyderabad: TRS on Wednesday demanded that the Andhra Pradesh government table a resolution, seeking creation of Telangana state, in the five-day winter session of the state Legislature beginning on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the main opposition TDP said it will move a no-confidence motion against the government on the farmers' plight.

The TDP and the TRS made their points known at the meeting of the Assembly Business Advisory Committee (BAC), chaired by Speaker Nadendla Manohar, on the eve of the winter session.

"We made it very clear that we will move a no-confidence motion on the very first day. We also wanted a thorough discussion on issues like drought, price rise and corruption," TDP Legislature Party deputy leader P Ashoka Gajapathi Raju told reporters at the end of the BAC meeting.

Despite the fact that the numbers won't add up to pass a resolution in favour of a separate state, the TRS remained firm on its demand for a resolution on Telangana.

"We will not let the House function if a resolution is not moved," TRS floor leader E Rajender said.

Lok Satta Party chief N Jayaprakash Narayan alleged that both the ruling Congress and the main opposition TDP were not keen on having meaningful debates on any crucial subjects of public importance.

"The Congress just wants to fulfill a Constitutional obligation by conducting the winter session since it's mandatory for the House to convene at least once in six months. There are several issues of grave public concern which the House should actually discuss," he pointed out.
