Three TDP MLAs - Atchannaidu, Gorantla Buchchiah Chowdary, and Nimmala Rama Naidu were suspended for the rest of the session by Deputy Speaker, Kona Raghupathi during the ongoing budget session in Andhra Pradesh assembly. Finance Minister Buggana Rajendranath Reddy moved a motion against the TDP MLAs and the Deputy Speaker agreed.
The TDP MLAs protested after suspension and were marshaled out of the assembly. The issue came up during Question Hour when TDP members referred to the YSR Congress's promise of granting a pension to women of SC, ST, and BC communities over the age of 45.
CM YS jagan Mohan Reddy clarified that though he initially promised to give pensions to women of 45 years of age, he subsequently modified it in the party manifesto. These are the first suspension in Andhra Pradesh Assembly ever since YSR Congress came to Power.
