Convene assembly session

December 8: YSR Congress has demanded the Government to convene the winter
session of Assembly immediately to discuss pressing public issues.  

“It seems that
there is every effort by the State Government and the main opposition TDP to
skip the session, scheduled for December 10, showing some alibi or the other
but we demand that the assembly should be convened to discuss issues of public
interest,” Party MLA Bhumana Karunakar Reddy told reporters here on Saturday. 

A decision to
convene the assembly from December 10 to 21 was taken at the Business Advisory
Committee (BAC) meeting during the special session held to pass SC, ST Sub Plan
2012 Bill. Now the Congress seems to be running away from its responsibility
with the help of TDP, he said adding that it is not able to conduct 30 days of
assembly session in year which is against the spirit of parliamentary

Congress in the
name of the Party’s State Coordination Committee meeting or the All Party
meeting, it is trying to do away with the assembly session as it has to answer
many questions which may drag it into a tight spot, he said. 

“Main opposition
TDP has been helping out Congress on various issues and would continue its
support on this issue as well. TDP is also on a sticky wicket and has to answer
many inconvenient questions,” he said adding that with no notification issued
so far, it remains doubtful if there would be a winter session or not. 

The inefficiency
of the State Government and the lack of commitment of TDP have come to the fore
with the two parties planning to skip the Winter Session as they are not in a
position to take up public issues, from damage to crops due to Neelam typhoon,
law and order situation, price rise, to hike in power tariff, power shortage,
Minimum Support Price (MSP) among others. 

We demand that
the session should be convened immediately to have a meaningful debate on
power, agriculture and other issues as they were not allowed in the special session
held to pass the SC, ST Sub Plan Bill 2012, he said.
