MLA Seethakka Vs Assembly Speaker war of words: CM KCR intervenes
The Telangana Assembly Session witnessed a discussion on the issues confronting Gram Panchayats. Seethakka, a Telangana Congress MLA, claims that many Sarpanches of small Gram Panchayats suffer since they are unable to obtain bill clearance for numerous works done to their panchayats. She has raised concerns in the House about how the government intends to address these issues.
Speaker Pocharam has criticised Congress MLAs for harsh tone. In response, a Congress MLA said that she and her party cadre have experienced similar situations in the Assembly when attempting to speak on behalf of the people.
Later, CM KCR denied Seethakka's claims that the state administration misappropriated central government funds intended for Gram Panchayats.
