All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi asked the government when the draft Bill on the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh would be referred to the assembly.
“As and when the Bill is referred, I will announce it in the House and then hold another BAC meeting to fix the time for discussion,” the Speaker said.
“What if a no-confidence motion is moved against the government,” Akbaruddin Owaisi asked, to which AP Deputy Chief Minister Damodara Rajanarasimha replied, “We will see when it comes”.
