2 TDP MLAs suspended from Telangana assembly

Two legislators of the opposition TDP were on Saturday suspended from Telangana Assembly for disrupting the governor's address.

Revanth Reddy and S. Venkat Veraiah of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) would remain suspended from the house for the rest of the budget session, Speaker Madhusudhana Chary announced.

During Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan's address to the joint session of both the Houses of the state legislature on Friday, the opposition legislators had raised slogans.

The TDP members alleged that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government made the Governor speak lies about the state's development.

The Speaker said disciplinary action was taken against the two members for disrupting the Governor's address.

Protesting the Speaker's action, main opposition the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) staged a walkout.

The opposition parties later held a meeting with the Leader of Opposition K. Jana Reddy to chalk out their action plan.

Meanwhile, TRS defended the decision taken by the Speaker. TRS leaders demanded that TDP legislators should apologise to the House for their behaviour. They said opposition should change their attitude.
