The war of words between the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) and the Opposition Congress party, particularly after the latter's protest during the Governor's address to the joint session of the Legislature on Monday, has taken an ugly turn with the two sides resorting to a slanging match.
Speaking after the Governor's address, TRS legislators Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and V. Srinivas Goud alleged that some Congress members had come to Assembly in “inebriated condition” and one of the main Opposition members falling on another during the Governor’s speech was a clear indication. It is unfortunate that a Congress member had come to Assembly in such a condition and hurled the headphones on to the podium.
Although they did not take the name of the Congress member, it was clear that they were referring to Komatireddy Venkat Reddy as it was he who allegedly threw the headphones on to the podium and it hit Legislative Council Chairman K. Swamy Goud “injuring his eye” as claimed by the Treasury benches later.
Reacting strongly to the TRS allegation, Mr. Venkat Reddy later said he is ready for alcohol test to be conducted on the members to let people know who are coming in inebriated condition to the Assembly. “Our (Congress) 12 members are ready for the test, let all the TRS members, including the Chief Minister, come for the test to tell truth to people”, he said.
Later in the day, Mr. Venkat Reddy said he is ready to quit as a legislator and would apologise if it was proved with video evidence that the Council Chairman had suffered an injury on his eye in the Assembly.
