Andhra Pradesh Assembly session beginning on Thursday is all set to witness pandemonium as the opposition YSR Congress Party has geared up to take on the ruling Telugu Desam on various issues including special status to the state. It was planned to conduct three days session this Monsoon. The house may see some bedlam as the opposition is to raise its voice over the infamous cash for vote scam and special status issues.
On the first day of the house will confine to ratify the Goods and Services Tax bill which is a formality as half the number of the states have already given their nod so far and the bill is awaiting President Pranab Mukherjees’ assent. As soon as the session begins the business, leader of the house and chief minister N Chandrababau Naidu will talk on the GST Bill. The house with the consent of the opposition will ratify the bill. During the next two days the opposition is to corner the treasury benches and may create uproarious scene on the failure of special tag and cash for vote scam.
Opposition leader YS Jaganmohan Reddy has asked the YCP members to target the government on the special status issue as well as cash for vote scam. On the other hand Chief Minister, N Chandrababu Naidu has asked his cabinet colleagues to discourage the opposition from creating ruckus in the house. YCP is to ask the house to vacate the suspension order against its woman legislator Roja. Speaker K Sivaprasada Rao is to take a call on this issue as almost one year suspension time is nearing completion. Roja is learnt to have appealed to the speaker to vacate the suspension order. (NSS)
