TDP MLAs evicted from Andhra assembly
Hyderabad, March 23 (IANS) Legislators of main opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) were forcibly evicted from Andhra Pradesh assembly Friday night, 12 hours after they began protest in the house.
Police entered the assembly premises and removed over 50 TDP MLAs amid high drama and tension.
The police dropped the legislators at NTR Trust Bhavan, the TDP headquarters.
The MLAs had refused to leave the house even after it was adjourned by Speaker N.Manohar for the day. They were demanding the speaker to allow debate on electricity shortage.
The legislators alleged that the speaker was adjourning the house repeatedly, not allowing them to raise key issues like electricity shortage.
The officials held talks with MLAs to persuade them to call off the protest but they were not relenting. The MLAs demanded that the speaker give them categorical assurance.
