15 TRS MLAs suspended for disrupting House proceedings in AP

Fifteen MLAs belonging to the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) have been suspended for a day from the Andhra Pradesh Assembly today as they disrupted proceedings demanding adoption of a resolution on the statehood issue.

The TRS members stormed the Speaker's podium and raised slogans demanding that the House adopt a resolution seeking creation of Telangana state, even as Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy was supposed to present the Budget for 2013-14 financial year.

Speaker Nadendla Manohar adjourned the House till 10 AM, but order did not restore even after it re-assembled.

As the TRS legislators persisted with their demand, the Speaker asked Roads and Buildings Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao to move a motion for suspending the protesting members.

The motion was carried by voice vote and the TRS members were suspended from the House for a day.
