TDP MP dresses up as school boy demanding Special Status for Andhra, says PM has been the 'bad boy of class'


Taking to heart Chadrababu Naidu’s directive not to dilute their fight against the Centre for the Special Status to Karnataka, a TDP MP dressed up as a schoolboy, reported News 18.

Wearing shorts, carrying a ruler, pencil and a notebook, TDP MP N Sivaprasad alleged that PM Modi had been the ‘bad boy of the class’.  The Chitoor MP, on Monday, dressed up as a Telugu woman in a saree, claiming that the Centre had cheated Andhra women.

He was quoted saying by The NewsMinute: “ “How many assurances did you give us (the women of Andhra)? Do you know what would happen if the women of Andhra Pradesh get angry? How many movements they have taken out? How many struggles they have sacrificed and have accomplished? You came and we thought you’ll do something good for the country, you put demonetisation on our heads.

 Sir, you left people penniless. Do you know how many people died in ATM lines? They put their money in their banks, and they couldn’t take it out and get operations done, not get their children married, do you know how unjust it was? Forget that, people are scared to even go have an idli in a hotel as the GST might be too high. Hindu women like jewellery…You tried to put a limit on that also. You’ll even ask us to link our thaali with Aadhaar.”

Lok Sabha was adjourned till 12 PM within two minutes of convening amid chants of ‘we want justice’.

The Lok Sabha proceedings were disrupted for the 11th day today as the TDP, YSR Congress, TRS and AIADMK continued their noisy protests over various issues, including the banking scam and special status for Andhra Pradesh.
As soon as Speaker Sumitra Mahajan took up the Question Hour, members from these parties trooped into the Well holding placards.
While members from the TDP, YSR Congress, TRS and AIADMK were in the Well raising slogans and holding placards, MPs from the TMC and Congress were seen standing at their seats.
As the protests continued, the House was adjourned till noon.

Since March 5, when Parliament had reassembled for the budget session after recess, the Lok Sabha has seen disruptions on a daily basis.
Amid noisy protests, the House had passed the Finance Bill and the appropriation bills last week without any discussion. 

Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs should not dilute their fight against the Centre for the Special status to Andhra Pradesh in the Parliament.

"We should not dilute our fight. The public interest is our priority. We will not compromise on the matter of our rights. There is a possibility that the union government will let some other parties create din and adjourn the House sine die," Naidu said while addressing the party MPs via through teleconferencing in the evening.

"The support we're getting from other parties indicate the sympathy from all corners of the country for the state, for the injustice, it is facing. The MPs should continue with the same spirit. You have the support of 5 crore people of the state," Naidu said.

The Chief Minister further asserted that all the TDP MPs must attend the Parliament.

"All the TDP MPs must be present in the Parliament. See that MPs of other parties also attend the House and that other parties also give notices of No Confidence Motion," Naidu added.

Earlier in the day, the Parliament secretariat received three notices on a no-confidence motion against the Centre for its refusal to grant special category status to Andhra Pradesh.

Two was received from Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and one from YSR Congress Party.

Following a continuous uproar over the demand of 'No confidence motion' in the Lok Sabha, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan adjourned the House till Tuesday. The no-confidence motion, however, was not introduced in the Lok Sabha on Monday.

Rajya Sabha was also adjourned till Tuesday after TDP and All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) MPs created an uproar over special status to Andhra Pradesh and Cauvery dispute.
