Opposition parties stage walkout of AP Assembly

Hyderabad: Opposition parties TDP, CPI, CPM and BJP walked out of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly today alleging large-scale diversion of funds earmarked under SC, ST sub-plans for the state.

The Praja Rajyam Party and Lok Satta Party too registered their protest on the issue even as the Congress government was caught on the defensive.

The matter was raised by senior Congress MLA D L Ravindra Reddy, who pointed out that the SC, ST sub-plan was not being implemented properly in the state.

He also referred to the Planning Commission of India’s report that found fault with the state government for not utilising the sub-plan funds properly.

The TDP, CPI, CPM, PRP and BJP MLAs joined chorus on the issue and cornered the government saying there was large-scale diversion of funds meant for SCs and STs.
