TRS Floor Leader Etala Rajender on Thursday accused the State Government of not taking any measures to discuss suicide of students and resolution on Telangana in the House.
Talking to media persons at Assembly Media Point, he said that though the budget session of the Legislative Assembly was conducted for 29 days, the House failed to discuss students’ suicides and resolution on Telangana on any single day.
“This clearly indicates that the House belongs to Seemandhra leaders,” he said.
Accusing Speaker Nadendla Manohar of acting at the behest of Seemandhra leaders, he said that despite 850 students ending their lives, the Speaker failed to allow discussion on this serious issue. Even the government did not came forward to make its stand clear on the Telangana statehood issue and resorted to frequent adjournment of the House. Though the TRS members were staging protest in front of Speaker’s podium, he said that the House was adjourned abruptly without taking up any discussion on the last day of the session.
In protest against the attitude of the government, he said that the TRS would intensify its agitation for statehood in the region from Friday. He said that the TRS would organize a massive rally on Friday from Sundariah Park to Indira Park to appeal to the students not to commit suicide for Telangana cause and fight unitedly without losing hope.
