Govt avoiding meaningful debate: YSRCP

Hyderabad, September 20: Reasserting the Party’s commitment to the people’s cause, YSRCP MLA Golla Babu Rao has said that the bandh called by various opposition parties in protest against the Central government‘s policies was successful.
“Our Party has observed bandhs, rasta roko, dharna and deekshas at all the district and constituency level headquarters against the hike in diesel prices, ration of LPG cylinders and allowing FDI in retail sectors as the Centre’s decision will affect all sections of society,” he told reporters here on Wednesday.
Our Party MLAs held a dharna at the State Assembly demanding roll back of hiked diesel prices and also against the abrupt adjournment of assembly without taking up public issues.
“MLAs of our Party expressed resentment over the conduct of the Assembly which goes against the set parliamentary practices,” he said adding that the legislators on dharna were arrested by police.  
The Centre has been very rude towards the common man and has been increasing the prices irrationally and the decision to allow FDI into retail market will further burden the common man, he said adding that the Party cadre across the State had conveyed the message of resistance through dharnas and deekshas.
YS Rajasekhar Reddy has given subsidies and did not allow the price hike to affect the common man and has shown an example of good governance, he said.
“Ours is a people’s party and we are with the people and take up their issues. It is very ironic that the Centre which has restricted the supply of gas cylinder to six has issued a notice to increase the number to nine in Congress ruled States. This discrimination is beyond comprehension,” he said.
It is also surprising to note that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has welcomed the decision of FDI in retail sector which shows the concern of Congress for common man, he said.
TDP President N. Chandrababu Naidu instead of moving no confidence motion against Kiran Kumar Government has gone to Delhi to participate in the dharna at Janthar Manthar which shows that he wants to safeguard the State Government by all means, he said.
On the Party’s conduct on the floor of the House, he said, we are prepared to have a debate and discussion on all public issues and we have given adjournment notices on various issues.
We are not happy with the House being adjourned without any discussion as we believe in debate which is a main tool of parliamentary democracy, he said.
The State Government is shying away from meaningful discussions and the House is not being run in the way it is supposed. It is being abruptly adjourned depriving the Opposition a proper plank to discuss public issues, he said.
