YSRC seeks to move no-confidence motion against AP govt

The Jaganmohan Reddy-led YSR Congress today gave a notice to move a motion of no-confidence against the TDP government in Andhra Pradesh.

The YSRC said it was seeking to move the no-confidence motion as the Telugu Desam Party failed to fulfil the promises it made ahead of the elections in 2014.

“People have lost confidence in the TDP government as it failed on all fronts. It is also steeped in corruption,” the YSRC alleged.

The motion may be taken up only next week as the House will have a three-day holiday from Friday.

The notice was submitted to Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly Secretary.

YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy yesterday tried to corner the government on the alleged land deals in the new capital region Amaravati but faced a verbal onslaught from ruling Telugu Desam and BJP members

The Leader of Opposition was also repeatedly admonished by Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao over his behaviour in the House.

Speaking on the motion of thanks to the Governor’s address, Jagan tried to corner the TDP-BJP administration on different issues, like the “failure” to secure special category state status for Andhra Pradesh, special financial assistance and Polavaram irrigation project, among others.

He also sought to put the government in the dock over the land deals in the state capital region Amaravati in which some ministers, MPs, MLAs and other leaders of TDP have allegedly purchased huge tracts of land.

Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu himself intervened and demanded Jagan prove his allegations right on the floor of the House.

37 MLAs belonging to the Opposition party were yesterday suspended from the Assembly for a day as they tried to stall proceedings of the House over the alleged land deals in Amaravati.
