Congress to raise chillies’ issue, may stall Assembly
Hyderabad: The special session of the state Assembly to be held on Sunday morning is likely to feel the chilli heat as the Congress has decided to raise the issue before the government takes up the Bill to amend the Land Acquisition Act as suggested by the Centre.
“Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has rejected their proposal to discuss the chilli issue or at least make a statement. But we have decided to raise the issue the moment the session begins,” said Leader of the Opposition K Jana Reddy. If the government continues to be adamant, they may even stall the proceedings, he added.
Jana Reddy said instead of taking note of the problems faced by the farmers and trying to resolve the issue, the TRS government is accusing the Opposition of indulging in political gimmicks. He said the role of the Opposition was to draw the attention of the government to the problems faced by the people.
Instead of addressing the issue, the government was accusing the Congress of responsibility and politicising the issue. The TRS has been in power for the past three years and it is time they explain what they have done in the last three years, he demanded.
The Congress leader said the CLP in the morning held detailed discussion on the developments. It expressed serious objections to the language used by the Chief Minister towards the Congress leaders.
He said some members even felt that they should boycott the Sunday proceedings. However, they thought that since the Land Acquisition Act was brought by the UPA government led by the Congress, they should be present in the House and participate in the discussions, he said.
