Hyderabad: The power minister said that congress members had “licked the boots of seemandhra leaders like YSR”.And the congress MLAs stromed the podium demanding an apology to jagadish Reddy.After the question hour when congress MLAs sought replies about thermal power project in Mahbubnagar district.
Congress MLA G. Chinna Reddy said, “As a first-time MLA who became a minister with the blessings of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, Mr. Jagadish Reddy should come to the House well-prepared before answering questions.”
This annoyed the minister, who said, “I agree that I am a first-time MLA and don’t have experience as a minister. I became an MLA with the support of the people of Suryapet and became a minister with the blessings of KCR. But you became MLAs and ministers by licking the boots of Seemandhra leaders like YSR.”
“It’s the responsibility of both ruling and Opposition members to ensure that the House runs properly. Whatever happened in the House today is unfortunate. With both Mr Jagadish Reddy and Mr Chinna Reddy expressing regret, we should leave this issue now. I urge the Speaker to remove these remarks from the records,” Mr Rao said. This pacified the Congress MLAs.
