Telugu Desam Party deputy floor leader in the Assembly A Revanth Reddy created a ruckus in the Assembly when the TRS members did not allow him to speak even on Thursday. Revanth Reddy wanted to raise some issue during Zero Hour. However, the members of treasury benches raised objection and created furore which led to the brief adjournment of the House. After the House re-assembled, the TDP members protested over the issue and demanded that Revanth Reddy be allowed to speak.
Intervening on the issue, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao pointed out that it was decided to follow the rule of ‘One Party, One Minute’ during Zero Hour. Since Prakash Goud already spoke on behalf of TDP, Revanth Reddy’s request was disallowed. A few minutes later, when Revanth Reddy wanted to speak during the debate on irregularities in housing societies, the TRS members again objected to the same. This apparently irritated the TDP MLA and out of rage, he broke the headphones leading to ruckus in the House which forced Speaker S Madhusudan Chary to adjourn the House for 10 minutes.
Later, the TDP MLAs called on the Speaker requesting him to protect their rights in the House. They requested the Speaker to give a ruling on Revanth Reddy’s alleged remarks and assured that they would abide by it. However, they would not follow the instructions of TRS members. They said there was no rule which asks a member to apologise for his remarks although the Speaker is empowered to expunge the controversial comments from the records.
