Debate on no-confidence motion begins in AP Assembly

HYDERABAD, March 15, 2013

The Andhra Pradesh Assembly began a debate on a Telangana Rashtra Samithi-sponsored no-confidence motion against the Council of Ministers headed by Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy after it was admitted by the Speaker N. Manohar.

Earlier, the speaker announced that he had received two notices for moving no trust motions given by TRS and YSR Congress Party. By following precedence, he announced that he was allowing TRS floor leader to move the motion for taking leave of the house.

The motion was admitted after 45 members belonging to TRS, YSRCP, CPI, BJP, CPI(M), Lok Satta, suspended TDP member K. Harishwar Reddy and independent member Nagam Janardhan Reddy supported it. The minimum requirement for admitting a no confidence motion is 30, one-tenth of the strength of the House.

Initiating the debate after the Business Advisory Committee decided to take it up today itself, TRS member T. Harish Rao launched a scathing attack against the State Government and accused it of discriminating against Telangana region in different sectors, including payment of ex-gratia to workers.

Intervening Labour Minister, D. Nagendar refuted Mr. Rao\'s claim and criticized TRS for not mentioning about Telangana in the notice tabled expressing no confidence in the Council of Ministers. However the member was talking about Telangana in the debate.

Mr. Rao said there was no need to make a special mention on Telangana as whatever TRS leaders take up was for Telangana only.
