The Lok Sabha has been witnessing similar scenes since March 5, with opposition parties besides the TDP, which remains a member of the ruling NDA though it has pulled out of the Central government, raising a host of issues such as special status for Andhra Pradesh, enhanced reservation in Telangana and constitution of the Cauvery river board to settle Tamil Nadu's water dispute with neighbours.

Soon after the House resumed at 2 p.m. following its first adjournment of the day, the National Democratic Alliance constituent Telegu Desam Party (TDP) and some opposition parties, including the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), created a ruckus pressing for their demands. "It's very bad and sending wrong message outside", Naidu said as he adjourned the House till 2 p.m.

"We reposed faith in Modi but he is not in a position to make it a reality, '" he said in his reply to the motion of thanks to the Governor's Address.

"As per the decision of our party supremo N Chandrababu Naidu, we are announcing the candidature of C M Ramesh and Ravindra Kumar for the Rajya Sabha election", State TDP president K Kala Venkata Rao said in a release. "He also charged the Centre with "deliberately" postponing things and finding excuses and propagating that he had accepted (what all they said)"...

First, the TDP can not seek the support of the four BJP MLAs, since the relations between the two parties are strained beyond fix despite the fact that the TDP continues to be a part of the NDA and an ally of the BJP. "I hope Parliamentary Affairs Minister will take note of it", he said.

Cleveland Browns: Will free agency bring more excitement?
Previously, the Cleveland Browns had the most cap space before making a flurry of moves over a two-day period last week. He threw 51 touchdown passes and only 16 interceptions those three seasons with a combined passer rating of 92.5.


He asserted that there was "no turning back" as the fight for the state's rights would continue "till we achieve everything that's due".

"You can't forget that fact". Last week Jaitley categorically declined special status category to state, immediately after which TDP ministers in the Union cabinet resigned. "But he should be reminded that Telangana state was granted as it was the people's sentiments".

He, however, had promised Andhra Pradesh funds equivalent to what a special category state receives and said his government was committed to meeting all promises made to Andhra Pradesh at the time of carving out Telengana.

That is not your money or our money. "The Centre gets more from south India as tax revenue but it spends more in north India", he observed.
