Hyderabad: The legislators of TDP, TRS, CPI and BJP continued to disrupt the Budget session of Andhra Pradesh Assembly for the fifth day on Telangana issue. The proceedings in the Assembly remained interrupted on Wednesday as the MLAs demanded a resolution seeking separate statehood.

On the other hand, Congress MLAs loyal to rebel leader Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy too were on their feet on the fee reimbursement issue.

Telangana protagonists remained adamant on their stand on Telangana issue forcing the House to be adjourned thrice on Wednesday morning.

Holding placards and raising 'Jai Telangana' slogans, the TRS MLAs swarmed the Speaker's podium. The TDP members too raised the issues standing at their respective seats.

With no sign of order, Deputy Speaker Nadendla Manohar adjourned the House twice in the morning.

When the House re-assembled after the second adjournment, the Jagan-loyal Congress MLAs became vociferous and took exception to the government's indifferent attitude.

With chaos reigning, the Deputy Speaker adjourned the proceedings for the third time.

‘Padyatra’ by Jagan loyalists

Meanwhile, Congress MLAs and MLCs loyal to former party MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday undertook a 'padayatra' from Indira Park here in support of the fast being held by him for the last six days on the tuition fees reimbursement issue.

"We have undertaken the 'padayatra' in protest against the Andhra Pradesh government's insensitive attitude on the demand for release of funds for the tuition fees reimbursement and Jagan's fast," Konda Surekha, a loyalist of Jagan, told reporters at the Assembly.

The Jagan supporters found fault with the state government for not holding talks to meet Jagan though his week-long fast entered the sixth day and he needed medical attention.

About 20 MLAs, loyal to Jagan, have called on him during the last six days of his fast.
