Even before Telangana assembly could take up any business transactions, ten MLAs of opposition party TDP were suspended for one day after they continuously disrupted the proceedings of the house demanding sacking of Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, Agriculture Minister.
They were protesting against his remarks that farmers suicides which are reported in the media were not genuine. Right from the word go, TDP and BJP members holding placards rushed into the well protesting against the minister. Even Congress MLAs too joined them demanding speaker to take up their adjournment motion on power crisis and farmers suicides.
Speaker Madhusudhanachary started with the Question Hour and with opposition members continuing with their protests, he adjourned the house for ten minutes. Even after the resumption, TDP members protested and Harish Rao asked them to maintain decorum, which even MIM agreed. With TDP sticking to its guns, Harish Rao, read out the motion suspending ten MLAs E.Dayakar Rao, A.Revanth Reddy, M.Kishan Reddy, G.Sayanna, S.Venkata Veeraiah, T.Prakash Goud, A. Gandhi, M.Krishna Rao, M.Gopinath and Rajender Reddy to be suspended. Once the motion was passes marshals lifted them from the house.
