  • Go to people Chandrababu Naidu tells leaders

The Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Tuesday adopted a resolution strongly condemning the indifferent attitude of the Centre in fulfilling the promises made in the AP Reorganisation Act, including special category status to the state. As Chairman Venkaiah Naidu tried to pacify the members and conduct the Zero Hour, protesting members trooped into the Well holding placards and shouting slogans.

YSR Congress was also raising the Andhra Pradesh issue.

However, these could not come up today after proceedings were disrupted by the opposition protests.

Hitting out at BJP for changing its stand and doing injustice to Andhra Pradesh, Naidu said, "It is unfortunate that central minister says special category status can not be given on basis of sentiment".

While the Trinamool Congress and Congress led the charge against the bank fraud in the Punjab National Bank, Tamil Nadu parties carried banners demanding immediate constitution of Cauvery Water Management Board on the river water sharing. "This is too much", Naidu said asking members to go back to their seats.

"The government is agreeable to that and the Chair has also permitted", he said, adding "I don't find any reason for agitation".

Passengers stranded as DGCA grounds 11 flights with Pratt & Whitney engines
The US company added that the "aircraft on ground situation" may take until the end of the second quarter to address. Post the incident, the DGCA said that the flights with the A-320 neo engines must be grounded with immediate effect.


And now, having realised that the TDP was resorting to the blame game with an eye on elections, BJP seems to have chose to harden its stand and the curt remarks by the Union Minister Arun Jaitley gave enough indication to this. "Proper advance notice should be given", Naidu said.

State Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu told reporters that the TDP has made a decision to "expose" the Centre on what it has done or not done for the state - as promised in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014 - by putting out relevant facts and figures before the people.

However, when the House reassembled at noon, the protests continued and no legislative business could be carried out.

Amid the din, Deputy Chairman P J Kurien, who was in the Chair, directed the Secretary General to read out a message from the Lok Sabha.

"Government of India has released a total amount of Rs 12476.76 crore (124.76 billion) as special assistance to the state of Andhra Pradesh, which includes Rs 2,500 crore (25 billion) for establishment of the new capital city of Andhra Pradesh", he said in a written reply in Rajya Sabha.

As the bedlam continued, the Speaker adjourned the proceedings for the day after the tabling of reports of various standing committees.
