AFP Recalling AP Chief Minister’s statement on the floor of the House on February 20, 2011, that he would implement the Government of India’s decision on the bifurcation issue, Rama Rao alleged that the chief minister has gone back on his promise. “The Chief Minister repeatedly told this House that the bifurcation issue has to be decided by the Centre and that he would implement the decision, whatever it be. But, he has now openly opposed the draft Bill that provides for creation of a Telangana state. This amounts to misleading the House,” TRS member said and moved a privilege motion against the AP Chief Minister. Rama Rao also took exception to the AP CM quoting from the speeches of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and some other MPs in Parliament. “As per rules of the House, the Chief Minister can’t quote from the Parliament’s records without issuing a notice. This is a violation of rules,” he said.
