AP House adjourned over no-confidence, Telangana



Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh Assembly was adjourned twice this morning as Opposition Telugu Desam Party and Telangana Rashtra Samiti disrupted the proceedings on the no-confidence motion and the Telangana issues respectively.

The TDP and the TRS members stormed the Speaker's podium as soon as the House assembled for the day's proceedings. The TDP MLAs were demanding that the House take up the no-confidence motion while the TRS raised the demand for a resolution in the Assembly seeking creation of Telangana.

Within two minutes after the proceedings began, Speaker Nadendla Manohar adjourned the House for ten minutes. Same scenes were witnessed when the House re-assembled after half an hour.

The Speaker said he was in receipt of the TDP's notice for a no-confidence motion and would take a decision on it as per rules and procedures.

This did not pacify the TDP legislators and they insisted on an immediate debate. The TRS members were equally vociferous in their demand for a resolution on Telangana.

This forced the Speaker to adjourn the proceedings for 30 minutes the second time.
