  • Our request to prolong them has been ignored
  • MLA Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy

Mentioning his being elected for 5 times until now as MLA, Peddireddy stated that conducting sessions for as less as 13 days had never happened before. He also expressed discontent about the issues introduced in BAC meeting not being mentioned in the house. He stated that they had asked for prolonging the budget sessions for one more month.

We asked for discussion on 43 issues: MLA Srikanth Reddy
YSRCP MLA, Gadikota Srikanth Reddy, informed that they had asked in the BAC meeting for discussion on 43 issues. Speaking to the media after the meeting, he stated that it had been discussed in the meeting how beautifully the assembly building had been constructed and added that when the opposition had asked for discussion on people's problems instead, the ruling party had not accepted and commented that the ruling party leaders were scared of facing the 43 issues they intended to bring for discussion.

Gadikota stated that opposition YSRCP intended to mention issues like special category status for AP,  bifurcation issues, Polavaram project, capital city, defects of Swiss Challenge system, growing number of attacks on women, growing estimated cost on irrigation projects, corruption, negligence to Aarogyasree, 104, 108 schemes, increase of private sector in the state, problems of Agrigold victims, pakka houses for backward classes, assistance from the union Government, Government's stand on Kapu reservation, misuse of funds in Godavari and Krishna pushkarams, corruption in the state, the position of the state in the country, defects in e-pass book system, unemployment problem, stipend to the unemployed, employment opportunities, SC-ST sub-plan, attacks on Dalits, electricity bills, Government's treatment of handloom industry, investments in industrial sector, hike in electricity charges, Neeru-Chettu, irregularities in employment sector, migrations, resources wasted by foreign tours, DWCRA welfare, forceful land acquisition, conduction of local bodies, rights and duties in the house and took it to the notice of the members in the BAC meeting.

But the minister of legislative affairs, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, had denied to allot time to discuss all these issues citing lack of time, Gadikota said. Mentioning how only 13 days had been allotted for the sessions, Gadikota wondered what issues could be more important than these to be discussed or done.
