Congress MLAs suspended from T-Assembly

Congress MLAs suspended from T-Assembly

As Governor ESL Narasimha started his speech, Congress MLAs started shouting slogans against the government. Following the resolution, which was backed by MIM and BJP parties, the speaker asked the Congress MLAs to leave the house. Venkat Reddy, in an act that has been condemned by all, hurled headphones targeting the Speaker's podium, one of which hit Council Chairman K Swamy Goud on the right eye. They tore off the Governor address copies and threw the pieces towards the chair. He was admitted to Sarojini Devi Eye Hospital for treatment. The doctors, who conducted a CT scan of his face, ruled out serious injury to his eye but are learnt to have suggested that he be under observation for 24 hours. "This is totally uncalled for by the opposition members".

Slamming the Congress, state Legislative Affairs Minister T Harish Rao alleged that the behaviour of the main opposition members amounted to an attack on the Governor.
