HYDERABAD: The police lathicharge on pro-Telangana students in Osmania University campus rocked the Andhra Pradesh Assembly on Tuesday, forcing its adjournment thrice.
TDP members also raised the issue of alleged lathicharge of Telangana lawyers by police in the national capital and pressed for a discussion on the issue through an adjournment motion as soon as the day’s proceedings began.
However, Speaker Kiran Kumar Reddy disallowed the motion, saying that raising an issue that happened outside the state was against the House rules.
But the TDP MLAs from Telangana persisted with their demand forcing adjournment of the proceedings for 15 minutes.
The TDP members were on their feet even after the House re-assembled and tried to storm the well forcing the second adjournment for 30 minutes.
When the House met again, similar scenes were witnessed leading to its adjournment for a third time.
