Hyderabad: The logjam, which continued since the commencement of the budget session in the State Assembly over the Telangana and Samaikyandhra issues, ended on Saturday with the House deliberating the normal business without any hitch.
Unlike the noisy scenes and pandemonium witnessed in the Assembly during the past two weeks over the Telangana and Samaikyandhra issues resulting in stalling of proceedings and its adjournment, the House, for the first time, could take up the business listed in the agenda in a calm and orderly atmosphere.
As a matter of fact, the Deputy Speaker, Mr Nadendla Manohar, and a few members, including from the Praja Rajyam party, expressed their happiness and relief over restoration of normalcy in the House and important issues concerning the State and the people could be deliberated.
Earlier, as soon as the House assembled at 9 am, the Deputy Speaker pointed out that there was only one adjournment motion tabled by the CPM demanding stringent action against those committing atrocities on women citing the gruesome murder of a pregnant engineering student in broad day light in Visakhapatnam. The adjournment motion was, however, disallowed.
In the past, when soon after disallowing the adjournment motions, the House erupted with slogan shouting and the Opposition members storming on to the podium. However, it was pleasant surprise to see the question hour being taken up without any hurdle. Even the TDP Seemandhra members, who created a ruckus for the past days on the issue of Samaikyandhra, sat quiet and allowed the proceedings to continue.
The House, however, wore a deserted look in the absence the Congress and TDP members from the Telangana region besides the TRS boycotting the session. (NSS)
