NEW DELHI: Two NDA ministers on Tuesday assured MPs from AP and Telangana that the government will look into their demands related to special status and a separate high court for AP after members from the YSRC and TRS trooped into the well of the Lok Sabha.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said justice will be done to AP while assuring the TRS members that the Law Minister was working on the issue of division of the high court.  TRS and YSRC members rushed into the well immediately after the House assembled for the day. TRS MPs, protesting on the right side of Speaker’s podium, demanded immediate bifurcation of the high court while YSRC members stood to the left seeking special status to AP.

Speaker Sumitra Mahajan assured them that she will allow them to speak after the Question Hour. Rajnath intervened during the Question Hour and said, “I just spoke to the Law Minister (Sadanand Gowda). He is trying to resolve the issue (separate court). I would like to request members from both the states that the government is trying to look into the demands and whenever necessary, we will have a discussion with the members.” Parliamentary Affairs Minister Venkaiah Naidu said the government was examining the special status issue in the backdrop of the 14th Finance Commission recommendations.
