The Winter Session of the Andhra Pradesh (AP) Assembly witnessed a heated argument between the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP.)
On the 11th of December, during the ongoing session of the AP Assembly, the TDP questioned and criticised the decision of the YSRCP led AP Government to make English the medium of instruction in all government schools.
Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh (AP,) recently announced all the government schools would be converted into English medium ones to enhance the education system in the State.
On the 3rd day of the Assembly session, Gorantla Buchaiah Chowdary, a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of the TDP, demanded Telugu be implemented at the primary level in government schools. On the other hand, the YSRCP MLAs supported the introduction of English medium.
Chandrababu Naidu recalled a comment made by the YSRCP run Sakshi Post, a news website, criticising the TDP Government when they introduced English in primary schools. Mr. Naidu said the comment read, “Telugu is also important at the same time along with English.”
Soon, both the parties, the YSRCP and the TDP, had a heated argument, creating a disturbed environment during the Assembly session. The TDP even misbehaved and spoke loudly with the Speaker, Tammineni Sitaram.
The YSRCP leaders demanded action against the Chandrababu Naidu led TDP and asked the TDP President to apologise for his behaviour.
However, Tammineni Sitaram forgave Chandrababu Naidu and warned them against misbehaving during the session again.
The Winter Session of the AP Assembly started on the 9th of December and is expected to conclude soon. The Business Advisory Committee is yet to announce the working days of the Assembly session.
