Congress MLA flings headphone in Telangana Assembly, injures council head

Addressing the combined session of the Legislative Council and Assembly here on Monday, he said works on the Kaleswaram project were in full swing. Congress MLAs started protesting against the state government's indifferent attitude towards the growing agrarian crisis.

Goud was immediately taken out of the house and after first aid at the assembly clinic, he was rushed to Sarojini Devi Memorial Eye Hospital.

K V Reddy, who represents Nalgonda assembly constituency, threw his headphone at the podium, but it missed the governor and hit the legislative council chairman, Goud on his face, causing bleeding just below his right eye. He has been admitted for observation till Tuesday.

They even tore the copy of the speaker's speech and threw it into the air. If reports are anything to go by, CM KCR and TRS Ministers Harish Rao, others are demanding for the suspense of Komatireddy Venkatreddy for his act. They came to the House pre-planned to create disturbances. "As there was no mention of farmers' suicides in the Governor's speech, we wanted to express our dissent in the House", said Reddy, according to The New Indian Express.

Right after Governor ESL Narasimhan's speech began in the Assembly, the Congress began to protest.

While the ruling TRS condemned the unruly and unprecedented behaviour and demanded a police case, as well as the suspension of those unruly Congress MLAs and MLCs, Congress denied all charges and alleged that their leaders were beaten up by Marshals. The Governor, who wished that fruitful debate should take place on people's issues, concluded his address calling for happy living of every citizen with spiritual values.

On Sunday, Telangana Rashtriya Samithi president and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had reportedly told his party MLAs to take action against Opposition members if they tried to disrupt the governor's address.
