Ruckus continues, RS adjourned till 2 pm

Loyalty Paramount in TDP Rajya Sabha Selections

Chief Minister and Telugu Desam national president N. Chandrababu Naidu has chose to play it safe in the Rajya Sabha elections and not take any risks.

The Question Hour became a casualty once again as members from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) stormed the Well raising slogans. The only Congress member protesting in the Well was K V P Ramachandra Rao from Andhra Pradesh.

Chairman Venkaiah Naidu tried to pacify the members and conduct the Zero Hour but the protesting members trooped into the Well holding placards and shouting slogans.

The Lok Sabha was adjourned till noon and the Rajya Sabha till 2 pm as members of the Telugu Desam Party caused an uproar, pressing for special category status for Andhra Pradesh. "When there is no order, how can there be a point of order?"

In the Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan first adjourned the House immediately after the Question Hour started, as the TRS, TDP, AIADMK and YSR Congress members stormed the well.

TDP President Nara Chandrababu Naidu has finally taken a back step regarding the 3rd Rajya Sabha seat.

Naidu said, "It is nothing but neglecting the people's sentiments by saying railway zone is not possible for Visakhapatnam in yesterday's Home Ministry meet".

After the two Ministers pulled out, they have been staking tall claims though it was TDP that has discouraged SCS throughout and Naidu himself stating that SCS is not a wonder drug and now taking U-turn shows his raw opportunism, Parthasarathi said.

As soon as the Upper House reconvened at 2 pm after an adjournment earlier in the day, Trinamool Congress (TMC) member Sukhendu Sekhar Roy stood up, seeking the Chair's permission to raise a point of order.

Insisting on his demand for special category status to Andhra Pradesh, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to honour the promises made by the centre at the time of bifurcation of the state.

"I have no option other than to adjourn the House", Kurien said and then adjourned the house for the day amid the chaos.

Ahluwalia was to make a statement regarding status of implementation of recommendations of the 35th report of Parliamentary Standing Committee on rural development.
