An interesting, but heated debate took place on “homework” in Assembly today.
Participating in the debate on chief minister Chandrababu Naidu’ statement on the special category status to Andhra Pradesh, opposition leader YS Jaganmohan Reddy said he belonged to present generation while Chandrababu Naidu to the previous one, whose members were poor in knowledge.
“What I want to tell is why it is necessary to have a special status. We are in a situation where even the CM doesn’t have any understanding of the special status,” he said to cheers from his side and jeers from the treasury benches. ” Yes, ” he said adding that ” Chandrababu Naidu belongs to past generation. We belong to this generation. There are many things which Naidu doesn’t know and we know. We do home- work and he has neither patience nor time to do homework,” Jagan said provoking legislative affairs minister Yanamala Ramakrishndu.
“Jagan might be doing homework on the cases he was facing in courts,” Yanamala said.
Retorting, Jagan said Naidu also must be doing homework, but it could be on bailing himself out of cash-for-vote scam. To prove that he had done homework, Jagan showed to the house a bunch of paper, which, he said had been provided by the research section of Parliament on the benefits of special category status.
These comments plunged the house into disorder and the sub-plot cash-for -vote had become the main issue in the House.
