Swamy Goud on Monday suffered an injury when Congress members flung the mike at him, injuring his right eye. The Government is also working on Mission Bageeradha, which is aimed at providing drinking water to all the households in the State. The Congress MLAs staged a protest and flung papers and microphones in the air. Congress MLAs started protesting against the state government's indifferent attitude towards the growing agrarian crisis.

The agitated Congress MLAs then tore copies of the governor's speech into pieces and threw them at the podium.

As per reports, the leaders' broke microphones and threw them towards the podium where the Governor was seated.

As soon as the House assembled for the day's proceedings on Tuesday, Legislative Affairs Minister T Harish Rao moved separate resolutions seeking the suspension and expulsion of Congress members, which was approved by voice vote. Many ministers and MLAs spoke on the unruly behaviour of the Congress members. Pradesh Congress committee president Uttam Kumar Reddy said the ruling party had adopted a high handed approach to snub the opposition. I just checked the condition of Swamy Goud.

The opposition is also likely to raise the alleged failures of the TRS government to implement its election promises like two bedroom houses for the poor.

The MLAs said that the government ignored farmers' and unemployment issues. "When Congress members were staging protests in the House, one of the legislators was about to fall on Jana Reddy as the former was drunk", the TRS MLC claimed. He listed out the irrigation projects, education reforms and the initiatives for development if the state and welfare of people. The incident took place as the governor began his address to the joint sitting of assembly and the legislative council at the beginning of the budget session.
