Members belonging to ruling Congress and Telugu Desam Party tried to disrupt the customary address by the governor to the joint session of the Andhra Pradesh Legislature on Monday by raising slogans for and against the bifurcation of the state.
As soon as Governor ESL Narasimhan began his address, Congress members from Telangana rose to their feet holding placards with the slogan "We want separate Telangana state".
They also raised "Jai Telangana" slogan even as some MLAs belonging to TDP raised slogans in support of a united Andhra Pradesh.
The din lasted less than a minute as other members prevailed upon their colleagues to resume their seats even as the governor read out his address.
There were, however, howls of protest from the TDP members when the Governor referred to some of the government schemes.
Midway through the Governor's address, some Congress members again raised "Jai Telangana" slogans.
