AP assembly passes resolution on Special Category Status

Chandrababu's double standards exposed again : YSRCP

The Rajya Sabha was adjourned in the morning amid protests by opposition parties and NDA ally TDP on various issues including the demand for special status for Andhra Pradesh, the Cauvery row, sealing in Delhi and bank fraud.

They also requested to implement the provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014, and honour the promises made during the bifurcation of the state by the then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

When the House met at 11 am, Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu appealed to members to allow the proceedings, but adjourned the proceedings the moment members from parties of Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh, TMC and Congress were on their feet. "The southern states contribute maximum tax revenues to the Centre, but it is diverting the money to the development of northern states".

"Though we have given utility certificates, the centre is giving statements as if we did not submit it and misguiding the public", the Chief Minister said.

Unrelenting members from the TDP stormed the well, carrying placards demanding special status for Andhra Pradesh while the AIADMK demanded the setting up of a Cauvery water management board.

Donald Trump disagreed with sacked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson over Iran
There was disagreement between the two over the Iran nuclear deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Syria, Russia, North Korea. Trump's position: Last June, Trump announced that the United States would pull out of the Paris climate agreement.

Terming the Polavaram Project as the lifeline of the state, the state government expressed disappointment on the release of funds for the completion of the same. The centre assured Andhra Pradesh special assistance measures instead of SCS.

Naidu said discussions on India's biggest bank fraud and other issues have been permitted under rule 176 that provides for a member to give notice of a Short Duration Discussion for raising a matter of urgent public importance without the voting clause. This House strongly condemns the callousness of the Centre towards rescuing the state.

AP state Assembly has passed a resolution condemning Centre's indifferent attitude. It is much higher for our state which was divided against the public will and is in hard situations after unjustifiable division.

Earlier, Naidu also asked members not to make comments while being seated.

Addressing the Legislative Council, he also said the TDP wanted the Centre to review the implementation of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act and the promises made. Though TDP was confident of luring two MLAs from YSRCP with ministries - that were recently vacated by two BJP MLAs, the trouble for TDP was from BJP whose 4 MLAs may abstain from voting this results in TDP to either talk to BJP's central leadership or to lure 4 more MLAs from YSRCP.
