Tyrannical Behaviour Even in Getting Budget Accepted

Hyderabad: Telugu
Desam Government is showing dictatorial behaviour in AP assembly by burying
regulations. Budget was accepted by voice voting system. YSRCP had requested
for voting on Appropriation Bill and presented the rules relevant to this. The
Government unfairly won the bill by voice voting. It pushed aside democratic
values and constitutional inspiration.

issued by YSRCP

MLAs elected from YSRCP were issued whip
one week before for mandatory attendance in the court and voting against the
Government. This was issued in the name of party’s whip Amarnath Reddy and
handed over to all the MLAs elected from YSRCP. Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada
also was informed through a letter about the issue of whip.

Insistence for voting

YSRCP requested for division voting on
appropriation bill and submitted a letter for the same. Another letter was
submitted to the speaker informing that all the members of YSRCP had been issued
whip. A list of all the MLAs elected from YSRCP had been attached to this
letter. This letter was handed over to the general secretary of legislature
Sujay Krishna Rangarao.

Disregard in spite of clear

In his speech during budget voting, minister
of legislative affairs Yanamala Ramakrishnudu stated that there would not be
division voting on appropriation bill. Speaker Kodela Siva Prasad also
expressed the same opinion. To this, YSRCP president and leader of opposition
YS Jagan raised serious objection. He read out the regulations pertaining to
this and specified that it was the right of the opposition to request for
voting regarding acceptance of the bill. Still the speaker disregarded him or
the protest of the opposition party members. The budget was accepted through
voice voting. Immediately after that, the speaker adjourned the assembly
