Bedlam in House over CM's remark against Naidu

Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Monday plunged into pandemonium when Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhar Reddy's personal remark against TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu evoked strong reaction from the entire Opposition leading to suspension of 13 TDP members from the House for the day.

During the course of his clarification over allegations of illegal iron ore mining in Anantapur district, the Chief Minister directed his ire at Naidu and made certain personal remarks, triggering furore in the House.

Apparently provoked by Naidu seeking to interrupt him, Reddy made a stinging personal attack which was condemned by the entire Opposition as "unparliamentary."

Later, the Chief Minister said he had no objection to his remarks being expunged if they were found unparliamentary.

Speaker K R Suresh Reddy assured the agitated Opposition that he would expunge the remarks after verifying them.

Demanding apology from the Chief Minister, TDP members frequently stormed the podium and stalled the proceedings. Amidst din, the Speaker abruptly adjourned the House till 4.30 pm.

When the House re-assembled, there was no respite from the furore with TDP members surrounding the podium and raising slogans demanding Reddy's apology.

Agriculture Minister N Raghuveera Reddy then moved a resolution, under Rule 340, seeking suspension of 13 TDP MLAs present in the House.

Later, CPI (M) and CPI members staged a walk-out as a mark of protest against the CM's remarks.
