During the second Assembly monsoon session in Andhra Pradesh, Congress members protested and walked out of the Assembly accusing the government of pressurizing the opposition by putting forward several bills for consideration and passage on the same day itself which was yesterday. Before walking out, Leader of Opposition Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy implicated saying that the government is not playing a fair game as some of the bills were given on Thursday and not before where in there was no sufficient time for the members to review and give suggestions.
He sternly quoted the rules stating that at least a time frame of 7 days has to be given to the House before the introduction of a bill. He also said that on of the bills dealing with Special Courts could be used inappropriately for harassment and sufficient time was supposed to be given for in-detailed discussion. Finance Minister, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu answered in return to the accusations of the Congress party that the bills were taken up in view of urgency.
Therefore Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao said considering the short session and urgency, sufficient material was given to members of both the ruling parties and main Opposition as well.
