TDP members BURN Telangana Bill in AP assembly

Last updated on: December 16, 2013 11:37 IST

There was absolute chaos at the Andhra Pradesh assembly with members of the Telegu Desam Party burning the Telangana Bill in the assembly on Monday.

Marking an-all time low, the AP assembly witnessed chaos with leaders hurling chairs at each other forcing the speaker to adjourn the house. The chaos commenced when leaders of the Telangana Rastriya Samithi sought a discussion on the bill.

The adjournment motion was immediately sought by members of those opposing the bill. However the speaker rejected the same which led to ugly scenes in the assembly.

To make matters worse, TDP Member of Legislative Assembly Siva Prasad Rao said that there would be bloodshed if Telangana was formed. This led to more problems.

The assembly which has been given six weeks time to give an opinion on the bill has been adjourned for now.
