 In continuation of their protest at the Secretariat on Monday night, the Telugu Desam Party legislators on Tuesday staged a dharna in front of the Telugu Desam Legislature Party office on the Assembly premises resenting the state government’s inability to supply power to the farm sector for seven hours.

 “Let chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy call a special session of the Assembly to discuss the issue.

 Let him say how many hours of power he will provide to the farm sector. one, two or seven hours,” Telugu Desam Telangana leader Motkupalli Narasimhulu said.

 The TDP legislators gathered at the TDLP office in the morning after they were bundled out of the Secretariat on Monday night for attempting to continue their protest in the conference hall of the chief minister’s office on the sixth floor of Samatha Block.

 They then moved in a group to the Mahatma Gandhi statue on the Assembly premises and garlanded it before resuming their protest.

 MLC Nannapaneni Rajakumari went to the top of the TDLP building and stayed there for some time as a mark of protest.

 After persuasion by the police, she came down and in the afternoon the TDP legislators ended their agitation.
