Hyderabad: The Telangana issue paralysed
the Andhra Pradesh Assembly for the sixth day on Friday.

Proceedings of the House were adjourned twice this
morning without transacting any business as the Telangana
Rashtra Samiti members rushed into the Well of the House
demanding creation of a separate state.

The TDP members from the region too were on their feet
raising slogans on the issue, forcing Deputy Speaker Nadendla
Manohar to adjourn the House for 15 minutes.

The TRS members, holding placards, once again stood in
the Well when the House re-assembled more than 80 minutes
after the break.

"I thought you would allow me some time (before
protesting)," the Deputy Speaker quipped.

He postponed the listed questions for the day and
adjourned the proceedings for half-an-hour as the TRS MLAs
remained adamant.
