12 March 2018

The Telangana Assembly saw an ugly brawl on the first day of its budget session when the Congress party made a decision to stage a protest during the Governor's speech.

While BJP leaders boycotted the governor's address, Congress members began shouting and rushing to the podium, but were prevented by assembly marshals.

Goud, who was hit on his right eye by the headphone, was first checked by a duty nurse at the Assembly and was then taken to the Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital for a full check up and possible treatment.

They tore copies of the speech and flung it in the air while a few MLAs also broke microphones and threw them towards the podium.

Minister for legislative affairs, T Harish Rao strongly condemned the "unruly behaviour" of Congress members. They came to the House pre-planned to create disturbances.

That is when Congress's Komatireddy Venkat Reddy was seen in a video standing on a bench and throwing his headphone, apparently aiming at the Governor. When the Governor was delivering his speech, the chairman was seated on his right while assembly speaker Madhusudhana Chary sat on his left. Opposition Congress MLAs have obstructed the Governor's speech in the assembly. With the key initiatives taken up by the government to increase productivity like farm mechanization, supply of quality seeds, fertilizers, poly-houses, a record production of food grains during the year 2016-17 was 101.29 lakh tonnes, Mr Narasimhan said.

The missile hit Goud near his eye and he was rushed to the hospital. Government whip in council Palla Rajeshwara Reddy told reporters that what Komatreddy Venkat Reddy did amounted to a criminal act.

TRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who addressed party MLAs on Sunday, had hinted at stern action against opposition members if they tried to disrupt the governor's address. He claimed that the state had become a role model for the other states in terms of development.
