The two MPs walked out after they were allowed to make a brief mention of the issue when the house reconvened.
“What is the point of stretching this tangle? Let the Centre make its stand clear. If the government is not willing to give Telangana, it should say so. Then, we will go back and discuss our options,” Rao told HT outside the house.
The issue has also disrupted the Andhra Pradesh Assembly, which was taking up the State budget on Monday. Fifteen MLAs of TRS Party were suspended for a day as they stormed the Speaker’s podium demanding adoption of a resolution in favour of Telangana creation.
TRS had, last week, moved a no-trust motion against the Kiran Reddy government. Though supported by Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress, the government was saved from a fall with the main opposition TDP choosing to remain neutral.
