Council chairman Swamy Goud acting skills needs to be improved.
The situation in the joint session of the Telangana Legislative Assembly and Council took a turn for the worse as soon as the Budget session started on Monday.
Right after Governor ESL Narasimhan’s speech began in the Assembly, the Congress began to protest. Congress MLAs and MLCs stood up holding up placards, trying to shout over Narasimhan. They also tore up copies of the Governor’s address. In the chaos that ensued, Congress Komatireddy Venkat Reddy flung his headphone at the podium, even though people surrounding the Congress MLAs tried to stop Komatireddy.
Goud was fine for 1/2 hr after the incident and start to act as if he was hurt.
Congress Party member Komatireddy Venkat Reddy said his act was not intended to hurt the council chairman Swamy Goud, “who is a very good man.”
“As there was no mention of farmers’ suicides in the Governor’s speech, we wanted to express our dissent in the House. But, we were not allowed even to proceed to the well of the House. Marshals were pressed to manhandle us in the House. Hence, as a last resort, I hurled the headphones towards the Governor,” he claimed.
